Lori Loughlin will be ringing in the New Year in her own house, after being released from the big house. On Monday morning, the “Full House” and “Fuller House” actress was released from a federal correctional facility in Dublin, California.
Loughlin pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud back in May. Her husband, fashion designer Massimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.
The couple were part of a larger scandal involving more than 50 parents who allegedly bribed prestigious universities to accept their kids.
The 56-year-old Loughlin began her sentence on Oct. 30, while her husband began his on Nov. 19. In addition to paying a $250,000 fine and serving 250 hours of community service, Giannulli is serving five months of jail time as part of a plea deal the couple signed. Loughlin had to pay a $150,000 fine and serve 150 hours of community service in addition to her jail time.
According to court records, Loughlin has paid all of the fines assessed against her, she has served her jail time, and now she must complete her community service to fulfill her portion of the sentence.
Loughlin reportedly flew back home in her private jet following her release. Giannulli is scheduled to be released on April 17, 2021.
