Look inside for details.
Loughlin (“Aunt Becky” on ‘Full House’) and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were respectively sentenced Friday (August 21) to a two month and five month stint in prison.

“I am truly and profoundly and deeply sorry,” Loughlin said, choking up as she apologized to U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton, Reuters reported.“While I wish I could go back and do things differently, I can only take responsibility and move forward. I’m ready to face the consequences and make amends.”
At first looking to avoid any jail time, the two sang a different tune in May and pleaded guilty to fraud charges related to schematic efforts to ensure their daughters were admitted to the University of Southern California for sports they did not practice.
The U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts announced the sentences on Twitter,both of which followed the terms of plea agreements between federal prosecutors and attorneys for the defendants.
