    Federal prosecutors announced earlier today that Loughlin and her husband now face a superseding indictment with conspiracy to commit federal program bribery.

    Lori and Mossimo previously faced 11 charges for their involvement in the scandal.



    And in case you need a refresher, Lori Laughlin pleaded not guilty to her previous charges, and seemed to be doing just fine when she made her first court appearance.

    Her daughter Olivia Jade may have also stepped in to give her two cents.

    As it stood before this new charge, Lori was looking at up to 40 years in prison but...


    ...these new charges bring her possible prison time up to 50 YEARS*.


    And $1.23 million in fines.

    *It's very unlikely she'll be sentenced to anything close to that, but still, yikes.

    Now, I'm no mathematician...
