The résumé, released in a Friday court filing, allegedly was fabricated for one of the couple’s daughters’ applications to the University of Southern California.
Loughlin and Giannulli are among 36 parents accused of paying into a vast criminal network led by Rick Singer, a college admissions consultant from California who took payments in exchange for either tagging their children as fake athletic recruits to get them admitted into elite colleges or fixing their college entrance exam scores. Singer pleaded guilty and is cooperating with authorities.
The couple are accused of paying $500,000 to a nonprofit led by Singer and a USC athletics official to get their daughters tagged as crew recruits to get them into the school. Neither daughter participated in crew, prosecutors say.
The résumé has multiple redacted sections, including the first name of applicant Giannulli and her high school. It does, however, list the applicant’s high school graduation year as 2018, which is when the couple’s youngest daughter, YouTuber Olivia Jade, graduated.
The résumé also lists years of coxswain experience, including multiple bronze, silver and gold medals won in various competitions. It also cites “awareness, organization, direction and steering” as the applicant’s “skill set.”
At the bottom of the résumé is a paragraph explaining how the applicant may enhance USC’s rowing team.
“USC has four boats which require 4 coxswains along with 2 back-ups. (Redacted) would fill the position of our #3 boat,” reads the document. “Although (redacted) is non-scholarship she is highly talented and has been successful in both men’s and women’s boats.”
The USC Registrar said in a statement shared with USA TODAY in October that Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli are not currently enrolled. The university was unable to provide additional information because of student privacy laws.
