Lori Loughlin was behind bars this weekend after reporting to a federal prison in Northern California on Friday to start her two-month sentence.
The former Fuller House actress will serve her sentence for her role in the massive college admissions scandal at the Federal Correctional Institute in Dublin, California – about 40 miles east of San Francisco.
According to NBC, the correction institute is the same prison Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman served 11 of her 14-day sentence last October.
NBC reports no visitors are allowed at the prison due to COVID-19. In addition to her two-month prison sentence, Loughlin will also have to pay a fine of $150,000 and complete 100 hours of community service.
The 56-year-old actress is expected to serve the full two-months of her sentence “because there is no time off for good behavior in the federal system for sentences less than a year,” NBC reports.
According to E!, Loughlin’s daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli were very distraught saying their goodbyes.
“The girls were there saying their goodbyes before Lori headed off. It was a big moment for their family and everyone was very upset. Although the girls knew it was coming and have had time to prepare, it’s still devastating to see their mom go,” a source shared with E!. “Both Olivia and Bella are very distraught over it. They are grateful it is for only two months but are anxious knowing they will have a very different and hard holiday season this year.”
