US star Lori Loughlin is apparently suffering from the circumstances of her prison sentence. Her bright spot: Christmas could be with her family.
"Full House" star Lori Loughlin (56) started her two-month prison sentence in the college bribery scandal on Friday, October 30th. Since then, she has been serving her time in the US federal prison for female inmates in Dublin, California. Two insiders recently revealed to the US magazine "Us Weekly" that the actress's first days behind bars were not easy. "Lori went to prison really strengthened, she had her faith and the support of her family, but the first few days and the journey ahead have discouraged her," said the unspecified source.
The second insider even reports that Loughlin is "a wreck". "It's only been two months and she's been trying to look ahead, but she's scared. Her thoughts keep telling her that something is going to go terribly wrong in prison or that her stay could be extended," the source added. There is a small ray of hope for Loughlin.
Christmas in your own home?
According to the US portal "TMZ", the actress was informed of December 27 (Sunday) as the official day of discharge. An inmate whose release date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or public holiday may be released on the previous day of the week. So Loughlin could be released on Friday, December 25th, or maybe even on Christmas Eve, since Friday is a public holiday. Loughlin had already hoped that she would be back with her family for Christmas when she entered prison.
Felicity Huffman (57) already benefited from said rule in October 2019, her release from prison was also on a Sunday. She left Dublin Prison on the eleventh day of the 14-day prison sentence she had received for her role in the college fraud scandal.
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.
