Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli have agreed to change their not guilty pleas to guilty in exchange for serving two to five months in a federal prison.

Loughlin, 55, and Giannulli, 56, were arrested in March 2019 and charged with paying a middle man $500,000 to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli, into USC by passing them off as rowing recruits.

For over a year, they proclaimed their innocence and refused to agree to a plea deal, preferring to take their chances in front of a jury.

But they changed their minds after the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. Prosecutors will ask a judge to sentence the couple to 2-5 months in prison, the plea agreements say.

Loughlin will pay a fine of $150,000 and save 100 hours of community service. Her husband agreed to a fine of $250,000 and 250 hours of community service.

Both of them got off easy compared to the years in prison they faced if they were convicted of all charges.
