The US actress Lori Loughlin (“Full House”), who spent two months in prison for the US university bribery scandal, returns to the screen. The industry magazine Deadline Hollywood reported. Accordingly, Loughlin can be seen again in the role of Abigail Stanton for the “Coal Valley Saga” spin-off entitled “When Hope Calls”.
The first rumors that Loughlin is back as an actress circulated last week. Specifically, it said in reports that Loughlin, who is still on parole, had received judicial permission that made it possible for her to travel to Canada for a “film project”.
The news caused a stir in social networks – some users criticized the fact that the university scandal had hardly any consequences for Loughlin because of her status, while others opposed Loughlin’s imprisonment and continuous reporting on the scandal.
Loughlin at large since late 2020
Loughlin was released in December 2020. Before that, she spent almost two months in prison in Dublin, California. A court in the US state of Massachusetts had sentenced her and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, to two and five months in prison for fraud, respectively. They also had to pay a fine of $ 400,000.
Loughlin and Giannulli reportedly paid $ 500,000 to a mastermind to mistakenly pass their two daughters off as rowers and place them on the sports team at USC University in California. Several wealthy parents were also charged with bribing college and university staff in the United States to place their children in prestigious colleges.
