Mossimo Giannulli transferred from prison to Halfway House as release date approaches

Mossimo Giannulli has been relocated amid his five-month prison sentence.

The 57-year-old fashion designer and Lori Loughlin’s husband were transferred from USP Lompoc prison in Santa Barbara, California, to a rehabilitation center in Long Beach, according to Bureau of Prisons records. Mossimo’s release date is set for April 17.

In January, a judge denied his request to be released from prison and serve the remainder of his sentence in home confinement. Giannulli’s lawyer filed the emergency motion stating that the conditions in the prison were “much more extreme than the court recommended.”

At the time the motion was filed, Giannulli had spent 56 days confined in solitary quarantine as part of the prison’s COVID-19 procedures. He was also asked to stay in his cell 24 hours a day with only three 20-minute breaks per week.

Giannulli is in prison after he and Loughlin pleaded guilty to paying $ 500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade, admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, though neither of they had both participated in sports. .

Giannulli was sentenced to five months in prison, two years of supervised release, a $ 250,000 fine and 250 hours of community service in August. Loughlin served her 2-month prison sentence on October 30, 2020 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, and was released on December 28. He was also ordered to pay a $ 150,000 fine and complete 100 hours of community service.

Her scandals, along with those of Felicity Huffman, were captured on a Lifetime movie, The college admissions scandaland a new Netflix documentary Operation Varsity Blues: The College Admissions Scandal.

A source told ET that the first Full house star was trying to “focus on the positive” when the documentary debuted on the streaming platform, adding that “all he wants is for time to pass so that people don’t talk about the college scandal again.”
