“The crime Giannoli and Loughlin committed was serious. For two years, they became involved twice in the Singer scam scheme. They involved their two daughters in the scam, directing them to pose in staging photos for use in fake sports profiles and instructing one daughter on how to hide the scheme from a high school counselor.
