Lori Loughlin was imprisoned for two months in the college admission scandal. Her husband, Musimo Giannoli, will serve 5 months.

Actress Lori Loughlin will spend two months in prison and her fashion designer husband Mosimo Giannulli will spend five months after the couple pleaded guilty to charges of conspiring in the college admission scandal. On Friday, a federal judge accepted the couple's plea deals at a videoconference hearing.

Loughlin, 56, will pay a $ 150,000 fine, serve 100 hours of community service and are supervised for two years. Giannulli, 57, is required to pay a $ 250,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and two years of supervised release.

“I deeply regret the damage that my actions have caused to my daughters, my wife and others. I am ready to accept the consequences and go forward with the lessons I have learned from this experience,” Janioli said at the hearing.

The couple has been accused of paying $ 500,000 to secure their two daughters' admission to the University of Southern California by disguising them as potential athletic recruits. The fake biography of their daughter Olivia Gade, the YouTube star, shows the couple pretending that Jade was an accomplished rower.

Lawyers for Laughlin and Giannulli originally said the couple had done nothing wrong and that the half a million dollars they paid were "legitimate donations." In May, a request to drop the charges was rejected. The couple's attorneys argued that federal agents trained William "Rick" Singer, the alleged gang leader of the plot, to "bend the truth," but US District Court Judge Nathaniel Gorton ruled that the plaintiffs' actions did not constitute misconduct.

Before sentencing, Judge Gorton Giannulli was stormed for committing a "crime of arrogance" "defined as excessive arrogance and excessive pride." Gorton said most of the people he sees have not grown up with role models, are abused, or live in miserable conditions and face difficult choices.

This is not the case with you. You, yourself, describe a stable family. You are a knowledgeable businessman. The judge said you definitely know better but you sponsored an amazing scam on our education system. You weren't stealing bread for your family.
