Lori Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli released from home confinement one day ahead of schedule

Mossimo Giannulli is officially finished with his scheduled home confinement a day ahead of time, TMZ reported on Friday.

This comes after the disgraced fashion designer was let out of his prison sentence weeks early after serving time for his role in the college admissions scandal.

Giannulli and his wife Lori Loughlin both pleaded guilty to last year to paying half a million dollars to fraudulently get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

Home confinement was set to end on April 17th for Mossimo but he was officially released on Friday April 16th.

According to TMZ, it’s common for confinement to end on the last weekday if the court scheduled end to the term falls on a Saturday or Sunday. 

April 17th was also the original date that the Italian designer was slated to be let out of prison but he was lucky enough to be sprung from the clink several weeks early.  

After four months, Mossimo left a Santa Barbara County penitentiary at 8:30am on Friday, April 2nd and immediately began serving his home confinement.

The 57-year-old was ‘surprised’ by all three of his children including infamous influencer daughter Olivia Jade, who decided to join the welcoming party ‘at the last minute’ half-brother Gianni Giannulli told Extra’s Billy Bush

The Justice Department has ordered the increased use of home confinement and the expedited release of eligible inmates by the Bureau of Prisons – with priority for those at low- or medium-security prisons – starting with virus hot spots.

Previously, Mossimo had tried to use the coronavirus pandemic as a reason to be released much earlier in his sentence but that request was denied. 

Giannulli and Loughlin pleaded guilty last year to paying half a million dollars to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

As part of the scam, the couple attempted to pass their daughters off as rowing stars, despite the fact that neither participated in the sport. 

Having initially pleaded not guilty, and each facing 40 years behind bars, the couple struck a plea deal with prosecutors which saw Loughlin admit to once count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and a single count of mail fraud.

As a result, Loughlin was issued a two month prison sentence, in addition to being ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and pay a $150,000 fine. Loughlin was released from a prison in December 2020.

The two were among the most high-profile parents charged in the scheme, which authorities say involved hefty bribes to get undeserving teens into schools with rigged test scores or bogus athletic credentials.
