Lori Loughlin Got Two Months In Prison While Mossimo Giannulli Got Five Months For Their Roles In The College Admissions Scandal
As expected, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced today after someone shot them up with a potent load of common sense and they reversed their not guilty pleas and finally took a plea deal for charges they faced for paying $500,000 to get their daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, into USC by passing them off as rowing stars even though if you asked them about rowing, they’d say, “Isn’t that the Olsens fashion line?” As part of their plea deal, both Lori and Mossimo pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud (and Mossimo also pleaded guilty to an additional charge of honest services wire and mail fraud). Lori agreed to serve two months in the clink and Mossimo agreed to five months, but ultimately their fate was up to a judge. If you were hoping that the judge would fart on the plea deals and give them LIFE in a maximum-security prison, you’re going to be disappointed. Because the judge accepted their plea deals.
People says that during their sentence hearings, which were done separately and through Zoom, Judge Nathaniel Gorton agreed to their plea deals. On top of the five months in prison, Mossimo will have to pay a $250,000 fine and do 250 hours of community service. On top of Lori’s two-month prison sentence, she’ll have to pay a $150,000 fine and do 100 hours of community service. They’ll both be on probation for two years after getting out of the chokey.
Ever since Lori and Mossimo got busted along with other rich parents in the College Admissions Scandal, prosecutors have painted him as a scheming dingle of rage who cursed out Olivia Jade’s high school guidance counselor and called the counselor a “nosy bastard.” But during the hearing today, Henry Winkler’s evil fraternal twin put his tail between his legs in front of the judge. via TMZ:
“I deeply regret the harm that my actions have caused my daughters, my wife and others. I take full responsibility for my conduct and I’m ready to accept the consequences and move forward with the lessons I’ve learned from this experience.”
And when it was Aunt Becky’s turn to be sentenced, she gave her greatest performance since Garage Sale Mystery. via The New York Daily News:
“I made an awful decision,” Loughlin told the judge. “I ignored my intuition and allowed myself to be swayed from my moral compass.”
The actress said she regretted the way her actions affected her two daughters and said she wished she could “go back and do things differently.”
“I will do everything in my life to redeem myself,” she said, her voice cracking with emotion. “Your honor, I am truly, profoundly and deeply sorry. I am ready to face the consequences and make amends.”
The judge responded by saying that he hopes she spends the rest of her “charmed life making amends.”
Mossimo’s lawyer requested for him to serve his sentence at a medium-security facility in Lompoc, CA. Lori’s lawyer requested for her to serve her sentence at Victorville Federal Prison Camp, near Los Angeles. The Bureau of Prisons will ultimately decide where their temporary prison home will be. They both have until November 19, 2020 to begin serving their sentences.
If Lori and Mossimo didn’t take that plea deal and took their chances at trial, which they originally planned to do, they could’ve been hit with up to 50 years in prison each if they were convicted of all charges.
Felicity Huffman took a plea deal early on and was sentenced to only two weeks in prison and was let out after 11 days. Felicity paid $15,000 to get her daughter’s SAT answers corrected. The Hot Pockets heiress, Michelle Janavs, pulled schemes that were very similar to Lori and Mossimo’s. Lady Hot Pocket (which is going to be my new Grindr username) paid $100,000 to fix her daughter’s ACT test and paid another $200,000 to get her daughter into USC through the volleyball team. Michelle took a plea deal and got five months in prison. She tried to play the COVID-19 card, saying that she’s at risk of catching coronavirus since it’s all over the prison system and wanted to serve her sentence at home. But the judge swatted away that request.
Lori and Mossimo have already planted the coronavirus seeds, so I’m sure they’re going to try to get out of going to prison over COVID-19 and will ask to serve their sentences in their new downsized mansion, which is ONLY six bedrooms, so honestly, they’ve been punished enough! But TMZ says that based on their deal, house arrest is not an option. Although if coronavirus starts spreading in the facility they’re sent to, they could ask to serve the rest of their sentence at home.
Well, the good news for Lori and Mossimo is that a quick minute after they check into prison, they’ll have the whole place to themselves from inmates combusting out of annoyance or pleading for a transfer after Lori and Mossimo complain about there being no Mr Chow in the chow hall for the ten-thousandth time.
