    "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband are contesting expanded charges against them in the college admissions bribery scandal.

    Lawyers for Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli entered not guilty pleas on their behalf Tuesday to charges of conspiracy to commit federal program bribery.

    Earlier this month, the couple waived their right to appear in federal court in Boston to answer to the latest counts.

    Prosecutors added the bribery charge for 11 parents who previously pleaded not guilty in the case. Another 19 parents have pleaded guilty or agreed to do so.
