The actress was eager to see her family.
Yesterday, former Full House actress Lori Loughlin, named as a major participant in last years’ college admissions scandal, was released from prison after a two-month sentence. Now that she’s out of jail, she’ll be under a supervised release for the next couple of years, and will also need to complete 100 hours of community service and pay a large fine. For the time being, however, the only thing on her mind was reuniting with her daughters.
According to an anonymous source that spoke with People Magazine, as soon as Loughlin was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, she immediately returned home to see her two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella.
“It’s the end of a very long ordeal,” the source said, adding that she is “beyond relieved that she can put her prison sentence behind her.”
“It’s the most stressful thing she has ever dealt with,” the source continued. “She plans on spending New Year’s with Olivia and Bella.”
According to a separate source that spoke with Us Weekly, Loughlin was desperate to get out of prison, both to have contact with her family and out of concern for her health. “She spent the last two weeks in isolation before she was released, so it has been especially tough, but she’s thankful to put it behind her. There was a COVID outbreak in the prison, so it was a precaution and not a punishment,” the source said.

“Before she went in, Lori was volunteering with children with special needs and intends to continue doing that, even if it’s not a part of her ordered community service,” the source added. “It’s hard to be home without [her husband] Mossimo [Giannulli] of course. They are praying to be reunited on Easter.”
Loughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, began his own prison sentence in November, and is set to remain incarcerated for five months, followed by a similar punishment to Loughlin’s.
