Lori Loughlin must face the consequences of participating in the college bribery scandal. She was sentenced to two months in prison.
The verdict for Lori Loughlin (56, "Full House") in the college bribery scandal has been reached. A few hours after her husband, the designer Mossimo Giannulli (57), the actress also received the judge's verdict on Friday (August 21) via video conference. She was sentenced to two months in prison followed by two years probation. Loughlin also has to pay a fine of $ 150,000 and do 100 hours of community service. The the Massachusetts District Attorney's Office said on Twitter.
Actress wants to "make amends"
The agreement with the public prosecutor's office, which provides for a two-month prison sentence for the actress and a five-month sentence for her husband, was reached in May of this year. The couple, who have been married since 1997, pleaded guilty to cheating in paying $ 500,000 to take their daughters to the University of Southern California.
"I made a terrible decision," Loughlin is now quoted by WBZ-TV, a CBS television station in Boston, Massachusetts. She is "truly, sincerely and deeply sorry for her actions." The actress is "ready to face the consequences and make amends". It is not yet known in which prison she will serve her sentence.
