(CNN) – Attorneys for Lori Loughlin and husband said the government “appears to be concealing” evidence beneficial to the defense.

Loughlin and her husband are accused of paying $500,000 to a fake charity to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.

In a motion filed Friday, Loughlin’s attorneys said the evidence shows the couple believed the payments would go to the school for legitimate, approved purposes.

Loughlin and her husband pleaded non-guilty to the charges.
