Actress Lori Loughlin has been handed an Easter gift from federal lawmakers – her designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, has been released from prison early.
Giannulli was sentenced to spend five months behind bars for his part in the U.S. college admissions scandal, but he has been released three weeks early and will serve out the rest of his sentence at a halfway house in Long Beach, California.
He and Lori were arrested in March, 2019 after paying $500,000 in bribes to ensure their daughters, Bella and Olivia, secured college spots at the University of Southern California as rowing recruits, even though neither were familiar with the sport.
The couple submitted guilty pleas last May after previously denying claims of misconduct.
Loughlin completed her two-month stint at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, in December, 2020.
The pair also paid hefty fines and must now complete community service.
