Hallmark Channel News: Former Hallmark Actress Lori Loughlin
Lori Loughlin is putting the past behind her, following her involvement in the college admissions scandal. The former When Calls the Heart actress served almost two months in prison for her part in the college admissions scandal. Now, Loughlin is set to pay more than $500,000 for full college tuition for two, unnamed students.
Ironically, this is the same amount that Lori and Mossimo paid to Rick Singer and the Key Worldwide Foundation to dishonestly designate their daughters, Isabella Rose Giannulli, 23, and Olivia Jade Giannulli, 22, as recruits to the crew team at the University of Southern California. This was despite the fact that neither girl had ever participated in the sport.
The news comes from Us Weekly, which quotes a source as saying that Loughlin is ready to “put the past behind her.” They continued, saying, “She has served her time in jail and completed her probation, community service and paid all of her court fines.”
Currently, there are no further details relating to the college the students are attending or their names.
Hallmark Channel News: Lori Loughlin And Mossimo Giannullo
Loughlin and Giannulli were convicted last year on fraud charges after bribing their daughters’ way into USC. After reaching a plea deal, Lori spent two months behind bars, paid a $150,000 fine, and performed 150 hours of community service.
Meanwhile, Mossimo had a longer stretch, spending five-month behind bars, with a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service. The couple has since completed their prison time and Loughlin has performed her community service. Meanwhile, as of May this year, Giannulli was still working on his community service requirement.
In June, the disgraced couple was given permission by the judge to vacation in Mexico. Since that time, Loughlin is reprising her role as Abigail in her first acting job since the scandal. She will be starring in When Hope Calls on GAC Family, a spinoff to the Hallmark series When Calls the Heart.
Readers, do you believe Lori Loughlin truly regrets her crimes and her time behind bars? Are you happy that she is able to reprise her role as Abigail, albeit in the spinoff of Hearties’ favorite show? Let us know by dropping a comment below.
