Full House actress, Lori Loughlin, aka Aunt Becky, and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, have plead guilty in the college admission scandal case.

Loughlin and Giannulli were apart of a huge scandal in which many parents paid to have their children admitted into different colleges around the country. Loughlin and her husband paid $500,000 bribes to have their two daughters admitted into the University of Southern California as recruits on the crew team even though neither one of the ever participated in the sport. The two initially plead not guilty, claiming the payments were donations and not bribes to the school.

In their plea deals, Loughlin agreed to serve two months in prison and two years of supervised release, pay a $150,000 fine, and complete 100 hours of community service, while Giannulli agreed to serve five months in prison and two years of supervised release, pay a $250,000 fine, and complete 250 hours of community service.

Loughlin’s lawyer requested to have the sentencing date on July 30, but the judge denied the request, citing how busy the probation office is due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The judge went on to announce that both sentencings will take place on Aug. 21.
