Lori Loughlin was released from a California prison after completing a two-month sentence for paying bribes to secure spots for her daughters at a top US university

A Bureau of Prisons spokesperson confirmed on Monday, December 28 that Lori Loughlin has been released.

Loughlin, 56, had reported to the low-security federal correctional institution in Dublin, California, in October.

Prosecutors said Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 in bribes to secure spots for their daughters at the University of Southern California as fake athletic recruits for the school’s crew team, even though neither rowed competitively.

After initially fighting the charges, Loughlin and Giannulli pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud.

Giannulli is serving a five-month sentence at a prison in Lompoc, California. He is scheduled to be released in April.

The celebrity parents were among 56 people charged in a scheme masterminded by consultant William “Rick” Singer, who has admitted to facilitating cheating on college entrance exams and using bribery to secure admission to elite schools.

In August, Loughlin apologized and said she had acted out of love for her daughters.

Loughlin starred as Aunt Becky in the family comedy “Full House,” which ran on U.S. television from 1987 to 1995. It was revived by Netflix in 2016 as “Fuller House.”
