New York: Lori Loughlin has been released from prison after serving nearly two months behind bars for her role in the college admissions cheating scandal.
The Full House actress walked out of a federal correctional facility in Dublin, California, early on Monday morning, local time, according to the federal Bureau of Prisons. She then had an emotional reunion with her daughters, Isabella Giannulli and YouTube star Olivia Jade, and seemed to be “beyond relieved” to be free again, sources close to the family told People magazine.
“It’s the most stressful thing she has ever dealt with,” one of the sources reportedly said.
Loughlin, 56, now must complete 100 hours of community service and spend two years in supervised release as part of her sentence. She and her husband, who’s serving five months at a separate California lockup, were sent to prison for paying $US500,000 ($658,000) in bribes to get their daughters accepted into university as athletic recruits.
