Loughlin, 55, and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, 56, have agreed to serve two months and five months in prison, respectively, under plea agreements filed in federal court in Boston. Those charges included conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery, money laundering conspiracy, filing a false tax return, aiding and abetting federal programs bribery, and aiding and abetting wire fraud and honest services wire fraud, according to the indictment. Mossimo will serve 5 months in prison with a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service. The U.S. District Court for the District of MA will hold court via video conference. They are the 23rd and 24th parents to plead guilty in the case.
Singer pleaded guilty to several charges a year ago and has cooperated with federal agents.
Both of Loughlin's daughters were admitted to the school.
Prosecutors in the northeastern state had said the pair paid $500,000 to gain admission for their two daughters at the University of Southern California as recruits to the crew team - a sport neither had ever trained in.
The scheme included posing for pictures on a rowing machine and falsifying their athletic history. The Desperate Housewives star was the other major celeb named in "Operation Varsity Blues", and she was accused of paying a $15,000 bribe as part of a scheme to boost her daughter's SAT score. The others have received sentences ranging from probation up to nine months in prison. "We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions", Andrew Lelling, a USA attorney, said in a statement.
She served a 14-day prison sentence in October and was ordered to pay a $30,000 fine.
