To recap the aforementioned scandal, Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team – though neither daughter had ever participated in the sport.

After originally pleading not guilty and claiming the payments were donations to the school, the famous couple were eventually arrested in March, 2019, and sentenced in May of that year.

Loughlin served time in jail from October 30, 2020, to December 28, 2020. She also paid a $150,000 fine, and had to complete 150 hours of community service. For his part, Mossimo was sentenced to five months, paid a $250,000 fine, and served 250 hours of community service.
