Mossimo Giannulli Sentenced to Five Months in Prison

He was also sentenced to undergo two years of supervised release, pay a $250,000 fine and complete 250 hours of community service.

He attended the hearing virtually in a suit and remained quiet during the sentencing, the outlet reported.

Federal prosecutors previously asked the judge to sentence Lori to two months, and Mossimo to five months, in a sentencing memo that follows their agreed plea deals earlier in the week. The memo also recommended a $150,000 fine and 100 hours of community service for Lori, and a $250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service for Mossimo.

Lori and Mossimo were charged back in 2019 with one count each of conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery, as well as money laundering conspiracy charges, conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, and honest services mail and wire fraud.

On May 22, Lori pled guilty to a count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Mossimo pled guilty to a count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, and a count of honest services wire and mail fraud.

They were accused of paying $500,000 to Rick Singer and Key Worldwide Foundation to falsely portray their daughters Olivia Jade, 20, and Isabella Rose, 21, as recruits for the University of Southern California crew team, despite never having played the sport.
