Looks like “Becky” from ‘Full House’ has received her belated Christmas present. Not sure yet if she still has any ‘good hair’ left, but she got what she was hoping for.
Lori Loughlin has been freed from prison on Dec. 28. She was one of the key figures in the college admissions scandal.
Loughlin was released from a facility in Dublin, California on Monday after serving her sentence in connection with college admissions bribery-related charges, per the Associated Press. Laughlin’s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, is currently serving a five-month sentence at a Lompoc prison.
Giannulli is supposed to be out on Apr. 17. Loughlin started her time in prison right before Halloween on Oct. 30.
The former “Aunt Becky” is now supposed to serve “two years of supervised release,” along with 100 hours of community service.” Not to mention she has to pay $150,000 in fines.
As for her husband, the fashion designer, known for his brand of clothing that has been sold at Target stores, has to be “under supervised release” for two years. He also has to serve “250 hours of community service and pay a $250,000 fine.”
During the time of both Loughlin and Giannulli being in prison, their daughter Olivia Jade went on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook talk show ‘Red Table Talk’ to talk about her side of the scandal and how everything affected her. She was mocked on social media for her appearance on the show.
Loughlin’s prison sentence and release is also getting blasted online by users as another example of white privilege, especially compared to Kalief Browder’s sentence as Kristen Clarke points out.
Lori Loughlin. Pleads guilty to federal crimes. Less than 2 months in prison.
Kalief Browder. Falsely accused of stealing a backpack. Couldn’t post bail. Spent 3 yrs at Riker’s awaiting trial. Dies by suicide after release.

I keep thinking about why I’m so surprised that Felicity Huffman and William H Macy are involved in this? Like... they just seem like such down to earth, character actor, “doing it for the craft” types, that I forgot they’re just rich people who want rich people shit.— Tracie Hunte (@TracieHunte) March 12, 2019

I want the people who were up in arms about affirmative action in college admittance to keep that same energy for rich people who pay to get their kids into Ivy League schools.— Jenét Where are the girls and babies? Morrow (@JenetAllDay) March 12, 2019
These are the people who are ACTUALLY stealing your kid's spot. https://t.co/L6qYvpNKcT

The saddest funniest thing about this college bribery scandal? These kids went to the best schools, had the best resources, and they couldn't compete with kids who had nothing. Their parents blame affirmative action instead of the fact that little Jackalope McQueasy is lazy.— Openly Black Mikki Kendall (@Karnythia) March 12, 2019

Lori Loughlin spent over $500,000 trying to get her daughters into USC, my alma mater. SC is 5% Black yet folk act like we were all Affirmative Action admits. Meanwhile we earned our spots (and have the student loans to prove it), and these folk buying tests and grades. Smh— Britni Danielle (@BritniDWrites) March 12, 2019

Rich people using their wealth to ensure (steal) spots at prestigious colleges for their mediocre children is an American pastime.— X (@XLNB) March 12, 2019
You know what else is tradition? Obscuring this fact by blaming black people & affirmative action for “snatching away” opportunities.

Wealthy white people committing fraud to pay their kids’ way into Ivy League schools instead of just donating to a building the way old-fashioned wealthy white people pay their kids’ way into Ivy League schools is what makes this news https://t.co/5TS22X2QN3— Ivie Ani (@ivieani) March 12, 2019

Can we please start giving Rich White kids the same side eye that Black & Brown kids receive when they say they attended an Ivy League school?! You know when it’s assumed that minority students took “someone” else’s spot who was “more qualified”! #DownWithTheDoubleStandard— bevysmith (@bevysmith) March 12, 2019
