Lori Loughlin has served her sentence in the college admissions scandal – now she has applied to get her passport back.

Lori Loughlin (56, "Full House") has applied for the return of her passport after serving the sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal, as reported by "US Weekly". The application has now been granted by a judge in Massachusetts. She had given the travel document in March 2019. She was released in December and is scheduled to do the last of the 100 hours of her court-imposed social service this week.

Felicity Huffman (58, "Desperate Housewives"), who had also pleaded guilty in the case and demanded her passport back in October 2020 after a two-week prison sentence, had acted similarly.

Loughlin was released from prison in Dublin, California, in late December 2020, where she had spent just under two months. Her husband Mossimo Giannulli, 57, who also admitted guilty of the bribery scandal, is currently serving a five-month prison sentence in a facility in Lompoc, California. Both have to do several hundred hours of social service and pay a fine of several thousand euros. Loughlin and Giannulli had been involved in the major university bribery scandal in the United States. They had admitted that they had paid the equivalent of around 410,000 euros to give their daughters advantages at the University of Southern California.
