Lawyer Speaks

Lori Loughlin was sentenced 2 months in prison, while her husband Mossimo Giannulli will serve 5 months for their involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Lori Loughlin, 55, and husband Mossimo Giannulli, 57, will both be headed to prison — but a lawyer says that there’s “no real reason” the couple would have to be behind bars at the same time. “When the court sets their surrender dates is up to the court. There is no real reason they would need to serve the time at the same time,” Massachusetts criminal defense lawyer Edward Molari tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “If a judge is trying to avoid causing unnecessary and unintended complications in their lives one imagines he would at least consider structuring their sentences so that they mostly don’t overlap. They are fairly short sentences so logistically that seems feasible,” he added.

After pleading guilty, Lori was sentenced to 2 months in prison on Friday, Aug. 21, and Mossimo was sentenced to 5 months — but it remains unclear when the pair will have to turn themselves in. “That will be up to the judge, and he will probably want to hear from the lawyers about when that can realistically be accomplished,” Edward explained, noting that “usually it’s between 2 and 6 weeks.” As for the possibility of house arrest, Edward notes that “anything is possible” but that it’s “more likely than not that they do spend at least some of that time at an actual prison.”
