Officials from the prison and the Federal Attorney’s Office said that actress Lori Loughlin reported to a federal prison in Northern California on Friday and was sentenced to two for her role in a large-scale college admissions cheating scandal. Months imprisonment.
The “Full House” star surrendered to the authorities at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, about 40 miles east of San Francisco. She is still early. The sentenced judge ordered her to go to prison on November 19.
In October last year, “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman (Felicity Huffman) served her for 1
Currently, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the prison does not allow visitors to enter. As part of the new intake precautions, Laughlin will be tested for Covid-19 (a disease caused by the coronavirus) and isolated.
Loughlin was assigned the phone number of the Prison Service (82727-112), and was fined $150,000. According to Judge Nathaniel Gorton’s virtual hearing in August After the verdict was released at the meeting, 100 hours of community service will be completed. She is expected to serve two months in prison because she has no time in the federal system to be sentenced for less than a year of good behavior.
Hoffman was released on the 11th day after serving 14 days in prison. According to prison officials, as usual, she will be released on Friday, which is aimed at prisoners who will be released over the weekend.
56-year-old Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli admitted in May to paying Rick Singer and the Key Worldwide Foundation $500,000 to mistakenly designate 20-year-old daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and 21-year-old Isabella Rose Giannulli as recruiters for the university. Southern California crew team. Neither girl is a rower. The couple even put students on the rowing machine for them to recruit students.
Giannulli, 57, was sentenced to 5 months in prison, 250 hours of community service and a fine of $250,000.
Lawyers and representatives for the family declined to comment on Friday.
Loughlin and Giannulli are 57 people prosecuted for the college cheating scandal, which was called “Operation Varsity Blues” by the FBI, and the scandal was shaken The university’s admissions office was shaken up and the public’s trust in the system was shaken. Singer, the plan’s planner, pleaded guilty, but because federal prosecutors continued to use him as a cooperating witness, he has not yet been convicted. He and a group of coaches and administrators provided parents with options to cheat on standardized tests or bribe through the side door to enter the university, but the cost is high.
Laughlin said in the August sentence: “I made a bad decision and made a plan to give my daughter an unfair advantage in the college admissions process.”
“I thought I was out of love for children, but in reality, it only hurts and weakens my daughter’s abilities and achievements,” she read as she wiped away her tears.
Those tears and her surrender to federal detention were a far cry from the attitude she showed when she first appeared in court more than a year ago. Then she laughed and was criticized for signing outside the court. In the courtroom, she pointed out that she would sit next to the prosecutor, something that defendants in other college cheating scandals did not do when they appeared in court.
Although federal prosecutors have a strong legal team, they continue to stack the charges and filed four replacement indictments before Loughlin pleaded guilty on May 21. Each of the allegations made the threat of imprisonment time worse. Although Hoffman’s crimes are low, when the time comes for her to be sentenced to imprisonment, the prospect of Laughlin avoiding jail becomes obsolete.
In particular, it was Singh, the main government witness who opposed her. Under the supervision of federal prosecutors, she summoned Loughlin and Jananli to discuss the details of the crimes that were later charged.
When the judge was preparing to issue Loughlin’s sentence, he said he had difficulty understanding the actors’ motives in the crime.
Gorton said: “Here, you are a respected, successful, professional actor with a long-lasting marriage, two healthy-looking and resilient children, and more money than you may need. This is a sunny Beautiful home in Southern California-a fairy tale life,”
“But you stand in front of a convicted felon. What is it? Out of incomprehensible desire, I want to catch more.”
