How Is Lori Loughlin Handling Her Time In Prison? — Hint, Not Well!
Full House actress Lori Loughlin is currently serving a two-month prison sentence for last year’s college admissions scandal. There have been some conflicting reports about how Lori is handling her incarceration.
Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, into the University of Southern California.
How Is Lori Louglin Handling Prison?
Lori reported to the Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin, in California last month. She’s quarantining for 14 days, which is protocol for new prisoners during the COVID-19 pandemic.
A recent Us Weekly report claimed that Lori was a “wreck” during her time in prison. “It’s only two months but she’s dreading it,” a source said. “Her mind keeps telling her that something will go horribly wrong in prison or that her stay could be prolonged.”
However, another source is telling Yahoo that there is “no truth” to that report. The outlet explains that Lori is by herself and having her meals delivered in brown bags. Visiting has been suspended during the pandemic, but inmates have extra telephone minutes per month. It’s not clear yet if Lori has phone privileges.
Lori apparently hopes to be home by Christmas. “She had everything in order, so she decided a couple of days ago to report to prison,” a source told People. “She can put this behind her as she goes into 2021.”
What Did Lori Say About The Scandal?
During a virtual hearing in August, Lori said she made an “awful decision.” She added, “While I wish I could go back and do things differently, I can only take responsibility and move forward.”
“I have great faith in God and I believe in redemption and I will do everything in my power to redeem myself,” she continued, “and use this experience as a catalyst to do good and give back for the rest of my life.”
In addition to her prison sentence, Lori will also be required to complete 100 hours of community service. She also had to pay a $150,000 fine. Her husband’s prison term is five months longer, and he’s required to surrender by November 19.
