After being prosecuted in the "Varsity Blues" scandal, Lori Loughlin was sentenced to prison. However, her husband and children won't allow the scandal to destroy their family.

Lori Loughlin is an actress best known for her role on "Full House" and it's spin-off "Fuller House." Earlier this year, the A-list actress and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli pled guilty to the nationwide college admissions bribery case and this led to Loughlin's imprisonment.

According to her plea deal, the 55-year-old would be incarcerated for two months, followed by 100 hours of community service, two years supervised leave and a $150,000 fine.

The couple hoped to do their sentences separately so someone could remain with their daughters. A source exclusively disclosed to US Weekly that although the family is overwhelmed, they still supported each other. The informant said:

"[They] understand that mistakes were made but that in order to move forward they need to forgive."

Sources also revealed that Loughlin's imprisonment has been difficult for the mother-of-two to bear. She reportedly went in with a strong mind but that changed when fears like her "sentence being prolonged" started to overwhelm her.

In her virtual hearing in August, the "Suckers" actress confessed that she participated in the scam to give her children the upper hand in their college admissions without realizing that all she did was "undermined and diminished my daughters' abilities."

The 55-year-old and her husband were also charged with an additional federal charge in the bribery case after they had faced charges for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, money laundering conspiracy, and honest services mail and wire fraud.

Sources revealed that despite their problems, the pair remained dedicated to their marriage and children. Although the federal charges rattled the family as they feared a longer prison sentence, they still kept a "united front."

Loughlin is scheduled to be released on December 27 but there's a possibility that she could be released earlier due to the Bureau of Prison policy on weekend release dates. 

The policy stated that inmates whose release dates fell on a weekend or a holiday are eligible to be released on the last preceding weekday. This means that the mother-of-two has a chance to spend Christmas with her family as her new release date would be on December 24.
