Lori Loughlin only just plead guilty to charges against her in the college admissions scandal last Friday, yet she already seems to be trying to get special treatment in regards to her prison sentence.
On Friday, Loughlin took a deal in which she would serve two months in prison while her husband Mossimo Giannulli would serve five months after he pled guilty as well. A source close to the family said that Loughlin is now trying to make it so that she and her husband could serve their respective sentences at different times so that one of them could always be free to act as emotional support to their daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade.
Loughlin seems to think that she is entitled to ask for this even though her daughters are both adult women in their 20s.
“Lori and Moss don’t want to serve their prison sentences at the same time. Among the reasons, even though their daughters are adults, Lori wants one parent to be free to provide emotional support to the girls,” the source told Us Weekly. “Lori’s concern all along has been Isabella and Olivia Jade.”
Another source went on to add that Isabella, 21, and Olivia Jade, 20, are worried about what it will be like to watch their parents do time behind bars.
“It will be surreal for Isabella and Olivia to visit them behind bars, but this is a much better outcome than what they envisioned,” the source explained. “As embarrassing and awful as it’s been, Olivia and Isabella still love their mom deeply, and it pains them to see her suffer.”
Fox News reported that Loughlin pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and her husband pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and to honest services wire and mail fraud. As well as their prison sentences, Loughlin will need to pay a $150,000 fine along with two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service. Meanwhile, Giannulli will be paying a $250,000 fine with two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
This comes after Loughlin and Giannulli spent over a year claiming that they were innocent of all charges against them in this case. They were accused of paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two girls admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither had ever rowed before. Loughlin and Giannulli were each facing 45 years in prison before taking this deal, so they should consider themselves lucky that they will be spending such little time behind bars.
