Former Soap star Lori Loughlin is about to have an even worse summer than the rest of us. The former daytime television actress and Fuller House star has landed herself two months in jail. The actress and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with the college admissions scandal, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. Here’s what you need to know.
Lori was fired from the Hallmark channel after reports indicated that she and her husband Mossimo (of Target t-shirt fame), were indicted for apparently bribing college admission administrators to accept their daughters, Olivia and Isabella, into prestigious universities.
