Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, hope to serve their prison sentences at different times so their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, aren’t left alone, according to reports.
Loughlin and Giannulli agreed to plead guilty in the college admissions scandal earlier in May. The couple had been accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia and Isabella, would be team crew recruits for the University of Southern California. The couple maintained their innocence for more than a year.
One source told Us Weekly magazine that the couple hopes to stagger their prison sentences because they want to have someone around who can support their children.
The source said: “Lori and Moss don’t want to serve their prison sentences at the same time. Among the reasons, even though their daughters are adults, Lori wants one parent to be free to provide emotional support to the girls. Lori’s concern all along has been Isabella and Olivia Jade.”
The couple submitted their guilty plea to a judge in May. They will face an official sentencing on Aug. 21 at 2:30 p.m. for Loughlin and 11 a.m. for Giannulli, according to Fox News.
The judge said he would make a decision based on the presenting report. Loughlin is “preparing to be interviewed by the Bureau of Prisons for the presentencing report which will be given to the judge to be used as guidance for formal sentencing,” a source told Us Weekly.
