Lori Loughlin's Husband Mossimo Giannulli Denied Early Prison Release

Lori Loughlin‘s husband, Mossimo Giannulli, isn’t getting out of prison early.

The fashion designer, who is currently serving a five-month sentence in California for his role in the college admissions scandal, was denied his request to get out of prison early on Tuesday (January 26) by a judge, Variety reported.

The judge ruled that his case does not meet the extraordinary circumstances required for compassionate release. He first entered prison in mid-November.

Earlier this month, his attorneys asked that for him to be allowed to serve the remainder of his sentence at home, saying he was put into isolation for nearly two months as the prison sought to contain COVID-19.

They added that isolation has taken a toll on his “mental, physical and emotional well-being.” He was released to the general population in January after repeatedly testing negative.

Judge Nathaniel Gorton denied the motion on Tuesday.

“Although the Court recognizes the danger associated with COVID-19 and the particular risk of transmission in penitentiary facilities, the fear of COVID-19 alone, without more, is insufficient to warrant release,” the judge wrote. He is due for release in April.

Lori was released in December after serving a two-month sentence. The couple pled guilty to paying $500,000 to have their children admitted to the University of Southern California using fraudulent athletic resumes.
