ACTRESS Lori Loughlin has began her two-month sentence for her involvement in the so-called “Varsity Blues” scandal.
Loughlin reported to the Federal Correctional Institution – FCI, in Dublin, California on Friday.
The prison – located just outside of San Francisco is also the same correctional facility that actress Felicity Huffman served time in for the same scandal.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, new policies are in place to contain the spread of the disease so Loughlin will spend her first two weeks in quarantine.
Jennifer Myers, a prison consultant, said Loughlin was having meals sent to her.
“She’s in one room with no other roommates,” Myers added of Loughlin’s likely conditions during quarantine.
“They can possibly go out a little bit on the [recreation] yard for a few minutes but other than that, they’re basically on lockdown.”
“She’ll probably be living with one other woman and that she will have a door that shuts,” said Myers. “There will be a TV room and she will have access to phones and email. She will have to get a job.”
The “Full House” actress and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli entered guilty pleas on conspiracy charges to Judge Nathaniel Gorton of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston in May.
The couple, who made their court appearance via a Zoom video call, had been accused of paying Rick Singer $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits. Neither girl had ever rowed competitively.
