Lori Loughlin could be released a few days early, in time to be reunited with her children at Christmas.
According to the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) website, Loughlin is currently scheduled to be released from prison on Sunday, December 27th. While it’s just two days after the Christmas break, the agency explains how they handle the release of dated prisoners. Departures fall on legal holidays, or as in her case, on the weekends.
“A prison office may release a prisoner whose release date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or a legal holiday, on the last day of the week unless it is necessary to detain the prisoner because another jurisdiction that seeks detention under a detainee, or for any other reason that may indicate that the prisoner should not be released until the prisoner̵7;s scheduled release date, “BOP stated on its website.
The 56-year-old actress began her sentence on October 30 at the Federal Corrections Institute in Dublin, California, a spokeswoman for the US Detention Center confirmed to Fox News at the time.
LORI LOUGHLIN STARTED TO CONSIDER Her 2 Months Cause For A Role In SCANDAL College Admissions
In August, Loughlin received a two-month sentence for her role in the nationwide college admissions scandal, which also resulted in a five-month prison sentence for her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, 57 years old.
The couple pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a $ 500,000 payment to fraud mastermind William “Rick” Singer to bring their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, to be recruited into the crew of University of Southern California. Both have never participated in this sport.
FCI Dublin is a low-security federal prison with approximately 1,200 female prisoners. A BOP spokesperson confirmed this is also the basis where actress Felicity Huffman of “Desperate Housewives” served 11 days in a planned two-week sentence for similar crimes.
Us Weekly reported earlier this week that the actress’s first days in prison were “difficult”, as was the weeks before she was detained.

“It’s only been two months but she’s scared of it,” a source told the magazine. “Her mind is always telling her that there will be something terribly wrong in prison or that her stay could be lengthened.”
The same source said she was a “scrap.”
Loughlin’s husband has not yet sentenced to prison. By order of the judge, each pair is given until November 19 to submit themselves to an institution.

Loughlin and Giannulli’s sentences put an end to more than a year of legal struggle. The couple initially pleaded not guilty to extensive bribery allegations against them in October along with 11 other parents caught up in the scandal. In May, the duo shocked many when they changed course and agreed to plead guilty like Huffman did in 2019.
In addition to sitting behind bars, Loughlin agreed to pay a $ 150,000 fine along with two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service. Giannulli, meanwhile, was fined $ 250,000 with two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
In addition to the verdict, Loughlin was fired from roles on both Netflix’s “Fuller House” and Hallmark’s “When Calls the Heart” after her roles in the scandal came to light in 2019.

Loughlin’s words began as soon as actress Huffman finished her sentence. The star was sentenced to 11 days in prison after being sentenced to 14 in 2019. She was also sentenced to 250 hours of community service.
Huffman recently filed a request to return her passport and is said to be wishing to return to acting.
