Actor Lori Loughlin turned herself over to authorities Friday to begin her two-month prison sentence after pleading guilty in May to federal charges in a nationwide college admissions scandal

The former "Full House" star was taken to FCI Dublin, a low-security federal prison for roughly 1,200 female inmates in the Northern California city of Dublin.

Loughlin, 56, was sentenced to two months in prison in August after U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton accepted her plea agreement. She was also fined $150,000 and required to complete 100 hours of community service. Family visits to the prison won’t be available due to the pandemic.

After completing her prison sentence, she will be under supervised release for two years.

"I made an awful decision," Loughlin said at her sentencing. "I went along with a plan to give my daughters an unfair advantage in the college admissions process. In doing so, I ignored my intuition and allowed myself to be swayed from my moral compass.

"Your Honor, I'm truly, deeply and profoundly sorry and I'm ready to accept the consequences and make amends."

Loughlin had pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and honest services wire and mail fraud. Giannulli was sentenced to five months in prison.

The charges stem from the couple allegedly paying $500,000 to fraudulently get their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California under the false pretense that they were rowing athletes.

Loughlin was one of 50 affluent parents and educators who were arrested and accused of using fraudulent means to get their children into top universities.

Another actor, former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman, also pleaded guilty for her role in the admissions scandal. Huffman was released in October 2019 after serving 11 days in the same prison Loughlin entered Friday.
