The couple, part of a scandal -in which more than 50 parents allegedly bribed their children’s way into prestigious universities, paid $500,000 to falsely designate their daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither ever participated in the sport.

Federal Bureau of Prisons officials previously confirmed Loughlin was set for release on December 27.
