• Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty for role in college admission scandal
  • Giannulli has to serve five months in prison and pay a fine of $250,000
  • In March 2019, 16 parents, including Loughlin and Giannulli, were charged with conspiring to commit fraud

Federal prosecutors for the college admission scandal have asked a presiding judge to accept plea deals that would have “Full House” actor Lori Loughlin serve two months in jail and pay a fine of $150,000.

According to an affidavit filed last year, Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, "agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California (USC) crew team—despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC."

The federal prosecutors said in court filings Monday that Giannulli needs to serve five months in prison for his involvement in the scandal and pay a fine of $250,000.

"He engaged more frequently with [Rick] Singer, directed the bribe payments to USC and Singer, and personally confronted his daughter's high school counselor to prevent the scheme from being discovered, brazenly lying about his daughter's athletic abilities," the prosecutors said, E! News reported. The couple’s sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

In March 2019, 16 parents, including Loughlin and Giannulli, were charged with conspiring to commit fraud.

"Sixteen parents involved in the college admissions scandal were charged today in Boston in a second superseding indictment with conspiring to commit fraud and money laundering in connection with a scheme to use bribery to cheat on college entrance exams and to facilitate their children's admission to selective colleges and universities as purported athletic recruits," Department of Justice had announced in March.

Following this, Loughlin entered a not guilty plea.

"Lori really believes she isn't guilty and that any parent would have done the same thing that she did if they were in that position. She plans to fight this and for her girls. She can't imagine what will happen to them if she goes to jail," a source had told E! News.

But in May this year, the couple agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges.
