‘Full House’ star Lori Loughlin has agreed to serve two months in prison. This was after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in the infamous college admissions scandal that was all over the news last year.
According to CNN, as part of the agreement, Loughlin will be spending two months in prison while her husband Mossimo Giannulli will serve five months. The two are scheduled to plead guilty on Friday at 11:30 a.m., prosecutors said.
The actress, who is now 55-years-old, will reportedly plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Her husband, who is a famous fashion designer, will plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. The married couple will also have to pay fines with Loughlin fined for $150K, ordered to two years of supervised release and community service. Giannulli will be fined for much more.
The fashion designer has to not only serve five months in prison, but he also agreed to pay a $250K fine, two years of supervised release, and 250 hours of community service.
“Under the plea agreements filed today, these defendants will serve prison terms reflecting their respective roles in a conspiracy to corrupt the college admissions process and which are consistent with prior sentences in this case. We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions,” United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said in a statement.
Loughlin and Giannulli, married since 1997, are both accused of paying $500,000 to a consultant for college admissions named, William “Rick” Singer, to get their daughters, one who is YouTube star Olivia Jade, admitted to the University of Southern California.
Actress Felicity Huffman was also involved in the scandal and had to serve only eleven days for her involvement in the scam regarding her daughter.
