Lori Loughlin: "Full House" star started to prison for two months

"Full House" star Lori Loughlin will spend the next two months in prison. She started her sentence on Friday.

Actress Lori Loughlin (56) has started her two-month prison sentence. As "NBC News" reported, citing information from prison officials and the federal prosecutor, the "Full House" star reported on Friday (October 30) in the US federal prison for female inmates in Dublin, California. It is the same prison in which "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman (57) was serving her sentence.

Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison, a $ 150,000 fine and 150 hours of community service in August. Her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli (57), faces a five-month prison sentence, 250 hours of community service and a fine of $ 250,000. The couple pleaded guilty to the fraud of paying $ 500,000 to take their two daughters to the University of Southern California.

At home for Christmas?

Loughlin is said to have had until November 19 to begin her sentence. Why did she take this step three weeks earlier? The actress hopes "to be home by Christmas," an unnamed source told People magazine. In any case, she seems to have to do without her loved ones for the time being in the coming weeks. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, no visitors are currently allowed in the prison, the prison informs on its website. There Loughlin is already listed as registered.
