Lori Loughlin Sentenced To 2 Months In Prison For College Admissions Scam

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have each received months-long prison sentences for their alleged involvement in the infamous college admissions scandal.

According to TMZ, who broke the report following the stars' virtual hearing on Friday (August 21), the married couple’s respective plea deals were accepted by the judge. Per the report, the Full House alum was sentenced to two months behind bars, two years probation, and must pay a $150,000 fine and perform 100 hours of community service.

Giannulli will serve five months in prison, pay a $250,000 fine, and will be under supervised for two years after his sentence. Additionally, he must perform 250 hours of community service.

As the outlet indicates, the hearing was conducted via Zoom. In addressing the judge, Giannulli stated, "I deeply regret the harm that my actions have caused my daughters, my wife, and others. I take full responsibility for my conduct and I'm ready to accept the consequences and move forward with the lessons I've learned from this experience."

The sentencing comes after the couple struck a plea deal in May with federal prosecutors.

As those following the ongoing case know, Loughlin and Giannulli were faced with myriad charges, including money-laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to commit mail, conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery and wire fraud, and honest services mail and wire fraud.

They were just two of the 53 people indicted in the college admissions scandal for allegedly paying $500,000 in bribes to facilitate their daughters, Olivia and Bella, into USC.

They faced 50 years in prison, respectively.

Actress Felicity Huffman was also embroiled in the bribery scheme and served 11 days of her 14-day sentence for her crimes back in October 2019.
