Full House Actress Lori Loughlin is currently serving jail time for her part in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin is set to serve two months in jail while her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, is also serving his sentence due to his involvement. All the while, their daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli are said to be upset and very worried.
According to a new report, Lori Loughlin's daughters are struggling now that their mom and dad are both serving time in jail. Loughlin initially reported to FCI-Dublin in California at the end of October to begin serving her sentence. Per an anonymous source, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli have been understandably distraught. The source had this to say about it.
"It's just a nightmare for them. They were very upset when they said goodbye to Lori. But to have both of their parents now in prison at the same time is very upsetting... They are beyond worried. They can't wait to have their mom home in December, though. They try to focus on this."
Lori Loughlin pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Initially, the Full House actress was potentially looking at more serious time in jail for her part in the scandal, which initially broke last year. Mossimo Giannulli pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, as well as honest services mail and wire fraud. This is a more serious charge. He will serve five months in total and was booked into federal prison earlier this month.
The couple was accused of paying $500,000 to help get their daughters into the University of Southern California. The money was paid to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to say that Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli were part of the university's crew team, which wasn't true. Loughlin and Giannulli were just part of a much larger college admissions scandal that was ultimately uncovered involving more than 50 parents. Actress Felicity Huffman was also among those who were brought up on charges. A source also spoke about Lori Loughlin's status, saying she is doing well, relatively speaking.
"She was a little weepy on her first night there, but she pulled herself together quickly. She hasn't had any specific problems. No one is bullying her. She's using this time to focus on herself, but she's also interested in hearing the stories of the other inmates. She realizes she's no better and no worse than any of them. Lori is resolved to finish her sentence with her head held high."
Lori Loughlin, who was known for her role as Becky on Full House, as well as the Netflix revival Fuller House, prior to the scandal, was previously said to be "terrified" ahead of her sentence. She is currently slated to conclude her sentence on December 28. Though she is hopeful to be released a few days early in time for Christmas. Mossimo Giannulli is scheduled to be released in April.
