Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have sent in new court documents alleging that prosectors are concealing evidence as a part of the college admissions scandal, NBC News reports.

What happened: Loughlin and Giannulli filed a new claim in court documents that said the case “urgently needed” the judge to get involved in the case, according to NBC News.

Context: Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of mail fraud, bribery and more crimes. The couple allegedly paid $500,000 so their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, could be crew team recruits for the University of Southern California.

What it says: The motion “claims that prosecutors have refused to turn over exculpatory evidence that appears to show that Loughlin and Giannulli believed their payments to Singer and USC’s athletics department would be used for legitimate purposes,” NBC News reports.

Next up: Loughlin and Giannulli’s next court date is scheduled for Jan. 17, 2020, for a status conference. The defendants do not need to appear.
