At the Zoom hearing, the actress's husband again pleaded guilty to fraud. "I deeply regret the damage my actions have caused my daughters, wife and others," he was quoted as saying by CNN. Giannulli also said that he wanted to take “full responsibility” for his behavior and was “ready to accept the consequences”. It is not yet known where he will serve his sentence.

This makes the couple one of the 55 people charged in the bribery scandal. "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman (57) was also found guilty in this regard and spent eleven days in prison in October 2019.
