Lori Loughlin Released From Prison Sentence For College Scandal
Actress Lori Loughlin has been released from federal prison following a two-month sentence for her involvement in the college admissions scam, according to a report given by prison spokeswoman Sally Swarts on Monday. In May, Loughlin pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge and confessed to paying $500,000 to the “scheme’s mastermind,” William “Rick” Singer, to get her two daughters into the University of Southern California under false pretenses that they were recruits for the school’s crew team.
Loughlin started serving her sentence on October 30 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. Following her release, she must also serve two years of supervised release, perform a total of 100 hours of community service, and pay a fine of $150,000.
Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, also pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge as part of a plea deal. He began his five-month prison sentence on November 19th at the Federal Correctional Complex in Lompoc, California. Following his release Giannulli must also serve two years of supervised release, perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $250,000 fine.
