DUBLIN, CA — Lori Loughlin was released Monday after completing a two-month sentence in a Dublin prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.
Loughlin, a 55-year-old actress best known for playing Aunt Becky in TV show “Full House,” and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, a 56-year-old fashion designer pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy charges for facilitating the fraudulent admission of their two daughters to the University of Southern California. Their daughters were admitted as crew recruits, though they had never participated in the sport, according to the Department of Justice. The Los Angeles couple admitted to paying a half-million for their daughters’ admissions.
Loughlin began her sentence Oct. 30 at Dublin’s Federal Correctional Institution, a low-security facility for females in the Camp Parks area, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
