New reports are coming in stating that former “Fuller House” actress Lori Loughlin had a difficult first night in prison after she surrendered to begin her two month prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal on October 30, but she “pulled herself together quickly.”
A source who has spoken to Loughlin told People Magazine that three weeks into her sentence, she has adjusted to the daily routine of prison.
“She has not had any specific problems,” the source said. “No one has tried any s— with her. No one is bullying her. The guards aren’t treating her any differently than other inmates.”
However, the insider went on to say that it took some adjusting to get Loughlin to this point.
“She was a little weepy on her first night there,” the source said. “But she pulled herself together quickly. Now she’s resolved to finish her sentence with her head held high.”
Loughlin plead guilty earlier this year to charges related to her allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have her two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.
Though Loughlin had been given until November 19 to turn herself in, she decided to begin her sentence early on October 30 in the hopes of being released by the end of December so that she could start 2021 with a fresh clean slate.
“As of right now, Lori is being told she will be released before the New Year,” another source told US Weekly. “Lori wants all this behind her as soon as possible so she can start next year off with a fresh start.”
The original source said that Loughlin is firmly focused on using this time in prison to improve herself and help her fellow inmates.
“She is using this time to focus on herself, but she’s also interested in hearing the stories of the other inmates,” says the source. “She realizes she’s no better and no worse than any of them. She feels like once this is over, she can return to real life: wiser, humbler, and better.”
