Lori Loughlin is reportedly still searching for a crisis manager to help change the public opinion around her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Two crisis management firms said Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have reached out to them to help improve their image, according to a report published Friday by CNN.

“She [Loughlin] has been having preliminary talks with some top crisis management firms on what she can do to change the public perception,” an executive told CNN. “I truly believe she thinks she’s going to not serve jail time and return to work.”

Loughlin and Giannulli have both been accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to secure their daughters admission into the University of Southern California. Since her arrest, Loughlin’s reportedly focused on the public’s perception of her. (RELATED: Lori Loughlin And Her Husband Want To Use Trial As Vindication)

“It’s killing her that her squeaky clean reputation has done a total 180,” this source, who did not take Loughlin and Giannulli on as clients, said. “She reads everything that’s written about her, and she’s already thinking about how she can turn her image around.”

Loughlin’s publicist claims the family is focusing on their legal case and have not brought in a crisis team.

The couple pleaded not guilty to charges of wire fraud and money laundering April 15.
