As Lori Loughlin's next court date nears, new details continue to emerge pertaining to what she is reportedly doing behind the scenes to get ready for a possible prison sentence.

In 2019, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying William "Rick" Singer $500,000 so that their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose could attend the University of Southern California (USC). Subsequently, they were charged with mail and wire fraud, honest services mail and wire fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery for their alleged involvement in the ongoing college admissions scam.

Now, two prison consultants have weighed in on what they believe the "Fuller House" star should do in order to prepare for the future.

According to Insider, Michael Frantz, founder of Jail Time Consulting, and Justin Paperny, founder of White Collar Advice, revealed what they believe Loughlin should and should not be doing.

Paperny stated that he believes that it's important that should she go into a facility she does so with a decent handle on how the specific prison operates, including when you can eat, disciplinary infractions, making purchases in the commissary, and how to successfully interact with other inmates. He also emphasized finding a routine and maintaining her dignity.

Additionally, he said that he would recommend ignoring those who said she was "nuts for going to trial."

"Rather than respond to everyone telling her she is guilty or defend her choice, I would advise her to be prepared to live with the consequences - in sum, own it!" he added.

As for Frantz, he said that the "When Calls the Heart" actress should focus on avoiding any trouble while at the facility, which could result in early release. He also shared that she should make an effort to always repay people if other inmates lend her things on a "rent-basis."

"Nothing's free. You don't take it and say, 'Oh, thanks' and never pay it back because that'll cause problems... You want to make sure that you treat people properly," he stated.

Loughlin has reportedly been taking her own "grueling" steps behind the scenes in order to get ready for a potential prison sentence, including learning how to avoid potential challenges down the road. At this time, some have speculated as to what punishment she could receive for taking certain steps before her trial, but she has not taken any formal action to do so at this time.

At this time, both she and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty.
