Lori Loughlin‘s husband Mossimo Giannulli, who was jailed for his part in the college admissions cheating scandal, has reportedly been released from prison, and will serve out the remainder of his sentence in home confinement.
Back in 2019, Loughlin and Giannulli were among a number of rich parents implicated in a string of fraud offenses, accused of paying a $500,000 bribe as part of a scheme to gain their daughters admission to the prestigious University of Southern California.
In May of last year, the couple pleaded guilty to various fraud-related offenses. She was ultimately sentenced to two months behind bars, which she served between October and December of last year, while he was sentenced to five.
There are reports today that the 57-year-old, who reported to prison in November, has been released. An unnamed source close to the designer said that he was let out on Friday, and will serve the remainder of his sentence under house arrest.
Mossimo Giannulli had been serving out his sentence at a federal prison near Santa Barbara, and his early release is reportedly “not out of the ordinary” given the short nature of his sentence.
A documentary on the college admissions cheating scandal, entitled Operation Varsity Blues, recently premiered on Netflix, drawing on recordings and reenactments of key events.
