According to the Huffington Post, as of Friday, Full House actress Lori Loughlin started her 2-month Jail sentence in a California federal penitentiary. Loughlin was brought up on charges for her role in the college admissions fraud with the University of Southern California.
The prosecutors said in a statement: “The parties recently agreed that the defendant can report to prison on October 30, 2020, instead of on November 19, 2020. The defendant has further agreed that, during her 2-month sentence, she will not seek an early release from prison on COVID-related grounds,”
Loughlin will also need to abide by the COVID-19 protocols of the U.S. Bureau of Prisons. This means she quarantined for 14 days and tested for the Coronavirus. The minimum security prison is located in Dublin, California and currently houses 847 inmates 2 of which have tested positive for COVID. Loughlin was sentenced to 2-months in jail, while her husband, was given 5-months for bribing the school to allow their daughters to attend the University of Southern California. The bribe totaled to $500,000 USD.
The 2-month & 5 month sentences were part of a plea deal made with the courts which, in addition to their sentences Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli hav been ordered to pay fines of $150,000 and $250,000 respectively and perform 250 hours of community service.
