Hi Class,

 I chose the actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer  husband Mossimo Giannulli in the college admissions scandal. Like most  celebrities that get caught in scandals have the best lawyers to help  get them out of the impossible and I am sure it is because of their  celebrity status that their able to do so. We4 live in a world where  people believe in “its not wat you know, it’s who you know.

I would say that philosopher Kant would agree that people should  do the right thing. However. Lori and her husband choose to do the wrong  thing. I believe everything in life is a choice and they made a choice  knowing the possible consequences if they were to get caught, which they  did.

Utilitarian, they didn’t seem to care much about what they  actually did but were concerned with winning the case, reducing time  sentenced and treated each court appearance like an event showing what  many would say “their true colors.

Consequentiality, they knew that it was wrong to commit fraud and  even went as far as to photoshop pictures of their daughter to help  create the perfect student. They must have thought because parents are  sometimes willing to go above and beyond for their kids that cheating  would be justified.

Non-consequentiality, they took no responsibility for their role in the scandal.
