It has been a pretty tough year for Lori Loughlin, especially concerning her legal drama. However, the actress is serving her jail term and is expected to leave in the next two months.

Sources have revealed that the actress is hoping to leave prison before the end of the year. This way, she can start 2021 the right way and be free of any legal problems.

"Fuller House" actress Loughlin's legal issues began over a year ago after she was charged in the case along with several notable people including fellow actress Felicity Huffman.

At the time, reports confirmed that Loughlin and her husband, Massimo Giannulli, had paid $500,000 to one William Singer to help get their daughter into the University of Southern California.

Singer was supposed to make arrangements for their daughter, Olivia Jade, to get in as a crew recruit. This is despite Olivia never having played the sport before. Eventually, the entire operation went south.

All defendants spent the entirety of last year fighting the legal case. However, they eventually got their sentencing this month. The court ordered Huffman, who pled guilty to paying $15,000 for false SAT scores, to pay $30,000 in fines.

While Loughlin is anticipating her release, she appears to be holding up well in prison.

Huffman also had to serve 14 days in jail and conduct 250 hours of community. The actress already served her jail term and is out, but it is unclear if she has done community service.

As for Loughlin, she got a two-month prison sentence as well as a requirement to pay $150,000 in fines and conduct 100 hours of community service. She will also be on two years of supervised release.

Giannulli got a five-month prison term, with a $250,000 fine and a requirement of 250 hours in community service work. Like his wife, he would be on two years of supervised release.

Loughlin eventually reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, last month. The actress had reported long before the deadline, which was set for November 19.

On Thursday, Giannulli reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Lompoc, California. The medium-security prison will be his home for the next five months.

While Loughlin is anticipating her release, she appears to be holding up well in prison. According to news reports, the actress is keeping her head down and taking every day in stride.

Sources told reporters that the actress had a "weepy" first night, although this was pretty normal for inmates. Since then, she had been on her own and had not gotten into trouble. The next few weeks could be challenging, but Loughlin should be fine as long as she holds her own. From there, it will be off to a fresh start.
