Lori Loughlin — the former actress from “When Calls the Heart” and “Full House” — will reportedly receive her passport back now that she’s completed her prison sentence from the college admissions scandal, Yahoo! Entertainment reports.

What’s going on?

Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton recently approved the move for Loughlin to receive her passport back now that she’s finished her prison sentence and has paid her $150,000 fine, according to Yahoo! Entertainment.

Context

Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so their children, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, could be crew recruits for the University of Southern California, as I wrote for the Deseret News. The couple pleaded not guilty in the scandal before flipping their plea almost a year later.

  • Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison, with a $150,000 fine with 150 hours of community service, according to Entertainment Tonight.
  • Recently, Loughlin completed her community service sentence.
  • An unnamed source told Us Weekly magazine: “Lori is due to complete her community service hours this week. She’s been working with children who have learning disabilities and has found it very fulfilling.”

So what’s next?

An unnamed source told People magazine that Loughlin would “love to act again” in the near future.

  • “Lori is still in the moment of enjoying being back at home. ... It seems Lori will put everything on hold until Mossimo is home. She isn’t really thinking about anything else.”
  • Mossimo Giannulli is expected to be released April 17, per Entertainment Tonight.
