Lori Loughlin's husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, reported to prison Thursday for his role in the so-called "Varsity Blues" scandal.
Giannulli, who, along with his wife, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges, was sentenced to five months behind bars at Federal Correctional Institution, Lompoc in Southern California; Loughlin is currently serving her two-month sentence at Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin in Northern California.

The couple was accused of paying $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits even though neither girl had ever rowed competitively.
As was the case with Loughlin, Giannulli will be tested for COVID-19 and will quarantine for 14 days in accordance with prison policies pertaining to the pandemic. When he is able to join the general population, Giannulli will be expected to wake up every day at 6 a.m. and maintain a regular job assignment, according to the prison handbook. Every morning, he must make his bed in accordance with prison regulations, and he will also be responsible for sweeping and mopping his cell floor, taking out his trash and ensuring his living environment remains clean and sanitary. FCI Lompoc will provide him with toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, razors and soap, but if he wishes to use brand-name items, he'll need to purchase those through the commissary.
For the duration of his time in prison, Giannulli will not be permitted to wear "civilian clothing" and instead will don a khaki uniform or gray or white gym clothing purchased from the commissary. Authorized footwear includes one pair of work shoes, one pair of shower shoes, one pair of slippers, one pair of casual footwear and one pair of sneakers not to exceed $100. A plain wedding band is the only piece of jewelry permitted.
His free time will be regulated, too. Giannulli may only possess one approved radio or MP3 player at a time, and he is limited to keeping 25 letters, five magazines and five books. During the evenings and on weekends, he will be able to access a recreation yard, but it will be monitored and subject to prison procedures.
Giannulli's family will be permitted to visit him on weekends and approved holidays; visitation hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. No more than four people will be permitted to see him at one time.
Loughlin will be able to make that trip soon. The former "Full House" star is expected to leave prison on Monday, Dec. 28.
