- She will be behind bars for two months for her role in the scandal.
Catch up real quick:
Last month, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were sentenced to two months and five months, respectively, in the college scandal.
- Loughlin and Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, could be crew recruits for the University of Southern California.
- The couple originally said they were not guilty in the scandal before switching their plea.
Fox News reports that Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton reportedly signed off on the prison request from Loughlin, saying it should “be designated to a facility closest to her home in (California), preferably the camp at FCI Victorville, if commensurate with the appropriate security level.”
Loughlin will need to surrender to the facility on Nov. 19 by 2 p.m., according to Us Weekly magazine.
Victorville — Loughlin’s chosen prison — has about 300 inmates total, per Us Weekly.

Some reaction to Loughlin:
Prosecutor Justin O’Connell said during the sentencing last month that Loughlin “focused on getting what she wanted no matter how, and no matter what the cost.”
- O’Connell said Loughlin’s crimes weren’t the worst of all parents in the college admissions scandal, “but there should be no mistake that Loughlin’s crime isn’t serious.”
