Lori Loughlin officially started her two-month prison sentence on Friday, Oct. 30th. This about 20 days early from her court-ordered date, which is Nov. 19th.

Accordingly to a legal source that’s close to Loughlin tells People, she wants to start early so she can be home in time for Christmas. But with this early start date, she’ll for sure be home in time for New Year’s. Loughlin wants to put this time in her life behind her, so she figured better to start the sentence early.

She’s doing her time at Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin, in California. FCI, Dublin is a low-security, luxury prison of sorts. It’s the one that Loughlin chose for her sentence.

However, it’s still prison with strict rules. According to TMZ, a schedule will be in place, including an alarm for waking up, quiet time, and daily count checks. Loughlin will be disciplined if she doesn’t follow the guidelines. Wearing the inmate fatigues and holding a job assignment might are also come with her time in lockup.

However, Laughlin does get some perks. She can listen to music and watch TV, but can’t change the channel. There will be craft classes, wellness and exercise classes, various sports, and holiday events. Long story short, she can play basketball, run track, play tennis, volleyball, or softball. And if that doesn’t fancy her elite taste, she can just workout.

Lori Loughlin’s Road to Lockup

Lori Loughlin and husband, Mossimo Giannulli, both pleaded guilty to using a $500,000 bribe to enroll their daughters at the University of Southern California as athletes. Both daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Giannulli were never recruited as athletes.

They fought the charges for more than a year, before succumbing to their inevitable future. Loughlin received a two-year prison sentence along with a $150,000 fine and the order to complete 100 hours of community service. She will also be on parole for two years.

Giannulli is set to spend five months in federal prison, serve 200 community, and pay a fine of $250,000.
