Jezebel (and Mashable's own Nicole Gallucci, above) noted Wednesday that Loughlin has inadvertently become "the face of the Hallmark Channel" with her ubiquity in its programming.

Mossimo Giannulli and Loughlin were recorded on calls with a cooperating witness stating that if they were ever caught they would say they made a donation to the foundation, the indictment stated.

The arrest and findings have caused the Hallmark Channel to end their association with Lori, who has starred in the series When Calls the Heart since 2014, as well as the Garage Sale Mysteries TV movies.

Hallmark Channel released a public statement announcing their separation with Loughlin.

Huffman and Giannulli were arrested that same day, while Loughlin appeared in a Los Angeles court on Wednesday, March 13.

The company initially took a wait-and-see approach after a federal investigation of the scam involving more than 30 parents, many of them prominent, was revealed Tuesday.

As part of her bond arrangement, Loughlin is being permitted to travel within the continental U.S.as well as British Columbia, where she is now filming.

Giannulli founded the Mossimo brand with $100,000 borrowed from his father, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She was later released on a $1 million bond and put up her home for collateral as part of the bond. "When Calls the Heart" tapes in Canada, and a judge ordered Loughlin's passport to be surrendered in December after grudgingly allowing her to cross the border for work until then.

The technology company said that it worked with Loughlin and her daughter in 2017 for a "one time product campaign".

Court documents allege Loughlin and her husband paid bribes totaling $500,000 to have their two daughters - 20-year-old Isabella and 19-year-old Olivia - designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, despite not actually participating in the sport. She appeared in Los Angeles federal court Tuesday looking visibly exhausted, before posting $250,000 bail and surrendering her passport.

Loughlin and fellow actress Felicity Huffman were named in a massive college admissions scam in which parents used bribery as well as false test scores and scholarships to help their children into reputable universities.
