Actress Lori Loughlin goes from Full House to the big house today, as she and husband Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced for their role in the nationwide college admissions scandal.

It’s two months for her and five months for him, plus a combined $400,000 in fines and 350 hours’ community service.

The Hollywood couple copped a plea after admitting they paid fixer William “Rick” Singer $500,000 to get daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose accepted into the University of Southern California as recruits for the rowing team.

In fact, neither girl—who have been trying to carve out careers as social media influencers—knew the difference between crew and J.Crew.

In Boston federal court Friday morning, US District Judge Nathaniel Gorton accepted the terms of Giannulli’s plea and sentenced the 56-year-old fashion designer (who created the Mossimo streetwear label) to five months in jail. The deal comes with a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service.

Presiding via video conference, the judge pronounced sentence on Loughlin, 55, early in the afternoon. She got two months behind bars, will pay a fine of $150,000 and perform 100 hours of community service.

It remains unclear why, if they were going to spend half a million dollars, the couple didn’t try to bribe their kids’ way into a better school.
