Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannullito to Serve Prison Time for Role in College Admissions Scam

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to serve prison time after being convicted of having their children pose as celebrities to get into college.

They were convicted in March of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Loughlin’s husband had his college admissions scam verdict thrown out this week, but the actress will still begin serving her sentence.

The television actress was sentenced to four months in prison, while Giannulli was sentenced to nearly a year.

Loughlin pleaded guilty in the scheme and admitted she helped ensure her daughters Olivia Jade, 19, and Isabella Rose, 20, attended the University of Southern California.

Loughlin has already served 11 days in prison and will have to serve three more before her sentence is complete.

The pair, according to Bloomberg, will be required to sell the house in the upper-middle-class neighborhood of Brentwood they bought after moving to LA from Massachusetts.

The stars of Hallmark’s “Fuller House” lied to colleges that were willing to vouch for their children in exchange for a payout.

Olivia Jade took a role on the reality show “Deadliest Catch” to try to get into USC but even that was not enough to secure acceptance.

In the past year, Loughlin has appeared in 10 episodes of the Netflix drama “Fuller House,” which sees her as the Aunt Becky character and stars Candace Cameron Bure as her best friend.

She has also appeared in numerous Hallmark movies and shows including the “Little Women” and “When Calls the Heart”.
