American actress Lori Loughlin was sentenced to two months in jail after facing charges in the college admissions scandal earlier.
The actress had an emotional breakdown while she apologized for conspiring to pay a half-million-dollar bribe to get her two daughters into the University of Southern California through fake recruits.
With a trembling voice Loughlin said, “I’ve 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.
“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,” the actress added.
Responding to Lori Loughlin, Boston federal Judge Nathaniel Groton said, “We can only hope that you will spent the rest of your charmed life, as you have said you will, making amends to the system you have harmed.”
To make amends, Loughlin has already started working as a volunteer at an elementary school for special-needs children in Los Angeles.
Her lawyer told the court, “Lori lost the acting career she spent 40 years building.”
Earlier today, Loughlin’s husband Mossimo Giannulli was sentenced to five months in prison for participating in a US college admissions scam.
