Lori Loughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was released from prison early, just in time for Easter.
On Saturday April 3, it was reported that the fashion designer had been released from prison and released to Long Beach Residential Reentry Management (RRM) according to In Touch. He was initially sentenced to five months in federal prison, 250 hours of community service and a fine of $ 250,000.
“He was released three weeks earlier than planned,” a source told Us Weekly. “It’s Lori’s Easter surprise.”
In January, Giannulli’s team filed an emergency request to change his sentence so that he could serve the rest of his time at home, as he was in solitary confinement due to COVID-19 issues. It is not known whether this concern played a role in his early release.
Meanwhile, Loughlin, who is said to have played a less active role in the scheme but still an accomplice, was sentenced to two months in prison and was released in December 2020. She was also scheduled to do 100 hours of community service, pay a fine of $ 150,000 and serve two years of supervised release.
The couple had previously denied involvement in the viral college admissions scandal. However, they subsequently submitted their guilty pleas to the fraud charges in May 2020. The couple paid $ 500,000 in bribes to have their daughters Bella and Olivia Jade recruited to the University of Southern California. as crew athletes when both had no experience in the sport.
