Prosecutors Want Lori Loughlin to Serve 2 Months in Prison

Federal prosecutors want Lori Loughlin to serve jail time after she and husband Mossimo Giannulli admitted to paying bribes to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

On Monday, prosecutors filed a memo asking the U.S. District Court in Massachusetts to sentence the “Full House” star to serve two months in prison, as well as pay a $150,000 fine and complete 100 hours of community service for her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

The memo also suggested to the judge that Giannulli serve five months, as well as pay a $250,000 fine and perform 250 hours of community service.

These punishments are in line with the plea agreements that both Loughlin and Giannulli agreed to in May.

That month, Loughlin pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while Giannulli pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud.

“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,” United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling said at the time. “We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions.”

The actress and the fashion designer were previously charged last March with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Months later, in October, prosecutors added counts of money laundering conspiracy and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.

Earlier this month, Variety reported that the couple purchased a $9.5 million house in Hidden Hills, California.

The two previously lived in a Bel-Air property, which was sold for $18.75 million, according to real estate agent Josh Flagg via “Extra.”

The Bel-Air mansion was previously listed at $35 million in 2017, and later relisted for $28.7 million this January.

Loughlin and Giannulli will be sentenced Friday.
