On Thursday, the U.S. Attorney's Office in the District of Massachusetts announced that Fuller House star Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion mogul Massimo Giannulli, had agreed to plead guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges for their role in a high-profile college-admissions scam that involved other rich and famous parents like the actress Felicity Huffman. Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as fake crew team recruits. Under the terms of their plea agreement, which is subject to court approval, Loughlin will serve two months in prison, while Giannulli will serve five months. They've also agreed to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and perform hundreds of hours of community service while on supervised release.
