Lori Loughlin’s request to serve her prison sentence near her home has been approved.
Months after getting arrested over the college admission scandal, Lori Loughlin somewhat received good news when a judge approved her request.
As stated on order filed on Sept. 9, the 56-year-old actress will serve her two-month prison sentence in Victorville, California.
Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton signed off the request and granted her request.
“[Loughlin] will be designated to a facility closest to her home in CA, preferably the camp at FCI Victorville, if commensurate with the appropriate security level,” the document, reportedly, states per Us Weekly.
Although she already got a nod from Judge Gorton, the Bureau of Prisons will give the final approval of Lori Loughlin’s request.
Everything is Now Ready For Lori
Meanwhile, while preparing for the possible transfer, the actress already received a registration number. Also, authorities ordered to surrender to the correctional institution not later than 2:00 PM on Nov. 19, 2020.
The facility in Victorville is a low-security prison camp for over 300 inmates. Loughlin would start serving her time in the institution once the request has been fully approved.
Mossimo and Loughlin Asked for Another Request
Before their arrest, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, wished not to serve their prison time at the same time. A source told the same news outlet that the actress worries so much about their daughters’ wellbeing.
“Among the reasons, even though their daughters are adults, Lori wants one parent to be free to provide emotional support to the girls,” the source explains. “Lori’s concern all along has been Isabella and Olivia Jade.”
What Happened to Lori Loughlin, Mossimo Giannulli?
In 2019, the couple shocked the internet when their names got involved in the infamous college admission scandal.
They, reportedly, paid Rick Singer $500,000 to make their daughters freely enter the University of Southern California (USC). Singer also helped them cheat, bribe, and lie throughout the college admissions process.
Initially, Loughlin and Giannulli denied their involvement in the scheme and pleaded not guilty. In addition, they once moved to dismiss the charges.
But on May 22, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the District of Massachusetts said that the couple finally decided to come clean.
A few months later, the judge pronounced that Loughlin needs to serve two months in prison, two years of supervised release, 100 hours of community service, and cash out $150,000 as a fine.
Her husband also received his charges—five months in prison, two years of suspended release, and a $250,000 sanction. He is also expected to serve 250 hours of community service.
