According to the bureau’s records, Giannulli is currently being released under supervision of the prison bureau’s field office in San Pedro, California. Since November 19, he has been imprisoned in a federal prison in Lompoc, California.
The Bureau of Prisons spokesperson Emery Nelson confirmed to CNN that Giannulli was released from Lompoc prison on Friday, but declined to say that he was at Halfway House Still at home.
Nielsen said that Giannulli is scheduled to be fully released on April 17.
Giannulli’s lawyer did not respond to CNN’s request for information on Saturday afternoon.
Giannulli and Loughlin became some of the most high-profile parents involved in the college admissions scandal. They admitted to paying $500,000 to the plan’s planner, William “Rick” Singer, to allow their daughter to be admitted to the University of Southern California.
Giannulli asked the judge to allow him to be imprisoned at home on compassionate grounds earlier this year because the coronavirus pandemic forced him to undergo a 56-day quarantine in the quarantine area. Judge Nathaniel Gorton denied this request on January 26.
Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison for his role in the college admissions scam and was released in December. Loughlin must also submit to a two-year release under supervision, perform 100 hours of community service, and be fined $150,000.
Giannulli was sentenced to five months in prison, sentenced to two years in prison, performed 250 hours of community service, and fined $250,000.
