According to the report:
Loughlin, who was assigned Bureau of Prisons number 77827-112, has also been ordered to pay a fine of $150,000 and complete 100 hours of community service once she is released under the sentence handed down by Judge Nathaniel Gorton during a virtual hearing in August. She is expected to serve her full two months behind bars because there is no time off for good behavior in the federal system for sentences less than a year.
As previously reported, the “When Calls the Heart” star and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were sentenced in August to serve time in prison after the two admitted to paying a total of $500,000 in bribes to secure their daughters’ Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli’s admissions into the University of Southern California as competitive rowing recruits.
