Lori Loughlin officially begins sentence at California federal prison

Actress Lori Loughlin has turned herself in early and has begun her two-month sentence at a California federal prison for her role in the nation-wide college admissions cheating scandal.

The “Full House” star had been ordered to report to prison on Nov. 19, but she surrendered on Friday at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif.

She has been assigned the prisoner number 77827-112, according to Bureau of Prisons records.

Loughlin, 55, who played “Aunt Becky” on the popular sitcom, and her designer husband, Mossimo Giunnulli, 56, pleaded guilty in May to conspiring to pay a half-million-dollar bribe to get their daughters into the University of Southern California.

Daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli, applied to USC as rowing recruits, even submitting phony photos showing them training — even though neither participated in the sport.

Loughlin had originally been assigned to her first-choice lockup, the cushy, low-security “camp” section of FCI Victorville, located two hours east of the mansion she shares with Giannulli.

It is unclear why she is now at a different prison.

Giannulli has been sentenced to five months in prison. The couple must also pay hefty fines as part of their sentence — $150,000 for Loughlin and $250,000 for Giannulli.

She is on the hook for 100 hours of community service; Giannulli must serve 250.
