TMZ: Mossimo Giannulli, Lori Loughlin's Husband Asks to Finish Remaining Sentence at Home
Mossimo Giannulli, Lori Loughlin's husband, who is currently in prison, has asked to finish his remaining sentence, which ends in April, at home.
Fashion designer and Lori Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, has requested that he finish his prison sentence, which ends in April, at home.
Giannulli is currently serving his 5-month sentence at USP Lompoc to participate in the college admission scandal that he, his wife, and other influential people were involved in.
Loughlin received jail time and was sentenced to 2 months in jail. She had reported to jail at the end of October and was released a few days after Christmas on December 28.
It was reported that Giannulli was struggling in jail as he is currently locked up in solitary confinement and had only been allowed out a few times a week to shower. A source revealed to The Daily Mail:
"He has spent the first month entirely alone, apart from when he's allowed out to take a shower."
The conditions are Lompoc's attempt to stop the spread of the Coronavirus as the prison has had many prisoners and guards test positive for the virus.
TMZ reported that Giannulli has tested negative around 10 times, and so he has claimed that he would not bring the virus home with him if he is released early.
Both Giannulli and his wife received jail time as a part of their sentencing and fines that come to $400,000 altogether.
In legal documents obtained by TMZ, he has asked a judge to release him to finish his sentence at home as he claims his solitary confinement is too extreme and warrants him an alternative option.
TMZ stated that the fashion designer has spent 52 days in solitary confinement already and that he is only allowed out for 20 minutes, 3 times a week to shower. On the TMZ website, it says:
"He says being confined to a small cell 24/7, with only three 20-minute breaks per week, is taking a mental, physical and emotional toll."
Both Giannulli and his wife received jail time as a part of their sentencing and fines that come to $400,000 altogether. They will also have to do over 300 hours of community service between them.
The couple was accused of paying Rick Singer $500,000 to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, placement at the University of Southern California.
In May, the couple had pleaded guilty to different charges, including conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. 50 other parents allegedly paid for their children to get into prestigious universities.
Olivia Jade has spoken out surrounding the scandal. She joined Jada Pinkett Smith and discussed the matter on Facebook's "The Red Table Talk."
