Lori Loughlin is said to have had a difficult first week in prison.
The 56-year-old actress started a two-month prison sentence on Friday for her role in the college admissions scandal.
She reported to the Federal Corrections Institute in Dublin, California, on Friday, a spokesman for the US Detention Service at the facility confirmed to Fox News.
Just five days later, sources told Us Weekly that she had achieved her “strong” saying but was still reeling from her new reality.

“She has the trust and support of her family, but the early days and the way ahead are still tough,” the source told the magazine.
An insider told the newspaper that the alum of “Fuller House” is trying “hard to be brave” but “nothing can make her go away” in recent weeks.
“It’s only been two months but she’s scared of it,” added the second source. “Her mind is always telling her that something terribly wrong in prison or her stay could be lengthened.”
The second source added that she is a “scrap.”
FCI Dublin is a low-security federal prison for approximately 1,200 female prisoners. A BOP spokesperson confirmed this was also the basis where actress Felicity Huffman of “Desperate Housewives” served 11 days in a planned 2-week sentence for similar charges.

In August, a federal judge sentenced Loughlin to a two-month term. The verdict came months after she and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty to a payment of $ 500,000 to scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer to give their daughter, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli, were recruited into the crew of the University of Southern California. Both have never participated in this sport.
During the August 22 verdict, Loughlin – who wore a white blouse and appeared virtual via Zoom – initially appeared calm, with little expression when lawyer BJ Trach said she was “extremely sorry. “Because of my actions. But when it was Loughlin’s turn to speak to the judge, she held back tears as she apologized.
“I made a bad decision. I planned to give my daughter an unfair advantage in the college admissions process and in doing so, I ignored my intuition and allowed it. I’m shaken off my moral compass, ”she said. “I have great faith in God, I believe in redemption and I will do everything in my power to redeem myself and use this experience as a catalyst to do good.”

The sentences put an end to more than a year of legal struggle. Loughlin and Giannulli initially pleaded not guilty to extensive bribery allegations against them in October 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 their plea agreement, Loughlin, 56, agreed to a two-month sentence and a $ 150,000 fine along with two years of supervised release and 100 hours of community service.
Meanwhile, Giannulli will sit in jail for five months, pay a fine of $ 250,000, accompanied by two years of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
Loughlin’s jail term came early, as a judge decided in August that both she and Giannulli would not be released until November 19. As of Friday, Giannulli had not yet reported to the facility to initiate his five-month sentence.
