Last year, Full House actress Lori Loughlin got caught (along with several others) trying to scam her kids' way into college. In August, she was sentenced to two months in prison, two years of supervised release, 100 hours of community service, and a $150,000, because no one's ever actually punished when they're rich.
Also in August, Loughlin bought a new $9.5 million home. Which is why she appealed to the sentencing judge that she might be sent to the prison of her choice — in this case, the Victorville minimum-security satellite prison camp, which is about a two-hour drive from her residence. As Vanity Fair reports:
The facility offers a wide array of recreational programs that wouldn't look totally out of place at a wellness retreat. The prison offers yoga, Pilates, painting, calligraphy, crochet, origami, ceramics, cartoon drawing, and music lesson for instruments such as the saxophone, accordion, and ukulele. Should Loughlin be considering a career change, there's also vocational training available, including bicycle repair, forklift operations, dental assistant training, and waste management.
Her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, on the other hand, has requested to serve his five-month sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Lompoc, California, according to Page Six. While this facility doesn't appear to come with quite the array of recreational activities that Loughlin's does, according to the handbook, it does offer music programs, language classes, oil painting, crochet, leatherwork, and ceramics.
I'm typically all for prison reform, but usually for the opposite reasons.
