“Full House” star Lori Loughlin has started her 2-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in California. The actress turned herself in on Friday. Interestingly, this means her sentence starts early as she was initially supposed to report to prison on November 19.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, a representative from the U.S Attorney’s office explained that the parties involved in Loughlin’s lawsuit agreed that it was okay for the actress to start her prison sentence on October 30 instead of November 19.

Loughlin was also said to have also agreed that she will not ask for an early release from prison based on COVID-19 pandemic related issues.

Back in August, the judge presiding over Loughlin’s case accepted a plea deal from the actress. This resulted in a judgment consisting of a two-month sentence and two-years supervised release.

In the earliest days of their case, the couple pleaded not guilty to the charges leveled against them. According to them, the money they paid was donations and not bribes.

However, on May 22, Loughlin and her husband each admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Giannulli also pled guilty to one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.
