Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin's received a two-month federal prison sentence Friday for her role in the high-profile college admissions cheating scandal.

As part of her sentence, Loughlin will also pay a $150,000 (about R2,572,948) fine and serve 150 hours of community service.

The prison time was recommended by prosecutors in a sentencing memo for both Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, which both of them agreed to in a plea deal.

Loughlin and her attorneys attended court via a Zoom call. Judge Nathaniel Gorton said he would accept the plea deal.

The couple was charged in 2019 with one count each of conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery in addition to charges of money laundering conspiracy, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and honest services mail and wire fraud.

Both originally pleaded not guilty before eventually deciding to take a plea deal.

On May 22, Loughlin, 55, confessed to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while Giannulli, 57, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.

According to the criminal complaint against them, the actress and her husband were accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to falsely designate their daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli, 20, and Isabella Rose Giannulli, 21, as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither of them ever participated in the sport.
