The star admitted to one count of conspiracy on wire and mail fraud alongside her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli. At the same time, they attempted to get their daughter, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, into the University of Southern California. 

The famous couple was among 50 other parents all caught up in the college scam crime. Loughlin and Giannulli paid $500,000 to get their daughters recruited into the college's sports team.

In August, the "Full House" actress was sentenced to two months in jail, a $150,000 fine, 150 hours of community service, and two years on supervised release.

When Loughlin, 56, first started her jail term, insiders revealed that she was quite emotional but loosened up with time. During the star mom's sentence hearing, she was quite remorseful, talking emotionally about her crime and sharing her regrets.

The 56-year-old mentioned that she went along with plans to get an unfair advantage for her daughters. The TV actress noted that the consequence of her actions only diminished her daughter's abilities and past accomplishments.

She expressed profound apologies adding that she was ready to make amends. Giannulli, on his part, was sentenced to five months in prison, a $250,000 fine, 250 hours of community service, and two years on supervised release.

When the legal issue first surfaced in 2019, Gianulli and his wife pleaded not guilty until this year when they hammered a deal with prosecutors. 

While Loughlin started her jail term in October, her husband arrived in prison in November. When he resumed the federal correctional facility, Mossimo shaved his head as advised by his wife. 

According to a legal source, Giannulli's move was to simplify things while he handles prison life. The fashion icon is set to be released in April 2021.
