Yesterday, we reported that former “Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal. Now, her ex-costar on the show Candace Cameron Bure has broken her silence about the situation.
Hours before Loughlin was sentenced, Entertainment Tonight took to Instagram to report on her husband Mossimo Giannulli’s five month prison sentence.
“Mossimo Giannulli has been sentenced to 5 months in prison and two years of supervised release for his involvement in the college admissions scandal. More details on fashion designer’s guilty plea at the link in bio. ( : Getty Images),” the outlet captioned a photo of Loughlin and Giannulli.
In the comments section, a fan wrote, “They should have 4 years each for the college kids that should have gotten in – ugh.”
That’s when Bure broke her silence about thew situation by responding to this fan’s comment with a simple sad face emoji. When Fox News contacted Bure’s representative asking for a comment on Loughlin’s sentence, however, they were told that she would not be commenting any further on it.
During her sentencing hearing, Loughlin broke down as she addressed the judge.
“I made an awful decision. I went along with a plan to give my daughters an unfair advantage in the college admissions process and in doing so I ignored my intuition and allowed myself to be swayed from my moral compass,” she said. “I have great faith in God, and I believe in redemption and I will do everything in my power to redeem myself and use this experience as a catalyst to do good.”
Loughlin and Giannulli were accused of paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.
Giannulli also apologized in his own sentencing hearing earlier in the day.
“I do deeply regret, as [attorney] Sean [Berkowitz] said, the harm that my actions have caused my daughters, my wife, and others,” Giannulli said. “I take full responsibility for my conduct, I’m ready to accept consequences and move forward with the lessons I’ve learned from this experience.”
