Comments Off on Actress Lori Loughlin released from jail after serving nearly two months in prison for her involvement in the college admission scandal
Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin has been released from prison and has returned to her family in Los Angeles after serving nearly two months in incarceration.
Following her release from a federal correctional facility in Dublin, California, on Monday morning, Loughlin reunited with daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli 20, and Isabella Rose Giannulli 21, whom she shares with her husband Mossimo Giannulli.
Having completed her prison sentence for her involvement in the nationwide college admissions scandal, it’s now time for the mother of two to put her prison sentence behind her and focus on the future.
Now reunited with their children, Loughlin is looking forward to having her husband Mossimo, 57, home once his prison sentence concludes.
Back in May, Loughlin admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while her fashion designer husband pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud. The couple was caught up in the scandal in which more than 50 parents allegedly bribed their children’s way into prestigious universities.
According to the criminal complaint against them, the couple was accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to falsely designate their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither ever participated in the sport.
On Aug. 21, a judge approved the couple’s plea deal sentencing her to two months in jail, a $150,000 fine, and 150 hours of community service, while Mossimo received five months in jail, a $250,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service.
Another popular actress Felicity Hoffman was also indicted, she has since served her time in jail and has also been released.
