Victorville, CA — Lori Loughlin, a Hollywood actress who was arrested in March 2019 for a college admissions scandal, will be serving two months in the prison just a 2-hour drive away from her home after agreeing to plead guilty to the case.
The 56-year old actress reportedly was given the choice of where she wanted to serve her sentence and so she chose a federal correctional institution in Victorville, California which is the prison closest to her new home. Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton approved the request.
The low-security prison houses only about 300 inmates and was used as a set for some Hollywood series, according to Vanity Fair. Other Hollywood stars, such as Abby Lee Miller, also served sentence there.
In addition to her sentence, Loughlin was also given a $150,000 fine, 100 hours of community services, and 2 years of supervised release in August. Her husband, Mossimo Gianulli, was sentenced to 5 months in prison, a $250,000 fine, 250 hours of community service, and 2 years of supervised release in connection to the same scandal.
The couple is both set to start their sentence on or before 2 pm on November 19 but is still hoping that their sentences won’t overlap so they won’t have to leave their daughters on their own.
Moreover, the Bureau of Prisons has yet to approve Loughlin’s request but she already appears to have a registration number assigned to her in the records.
Meanwhile, a homeless Black mom who lied about her son’s residence so he could attend a better school was sentenced to 5 years in prison.
