While Felicity Huffman was sweating through her first day in federal prison, friend and co-defendant Lori Loughlin was sweating it out in a Los Angeles yoga class, and RadarOnline.com has all the shocking photos!
Unlike Huffman, who pled guilty to a fraud conspiracy charge in the wake of the college admissions bribery scandal, Loughlin continues to maintain her innocence, and wait for her day in court.
As Radar readers know, the former Full House star allegedly gave $500,000 to have her daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, designated as crew team recruits for USC, even though they had never participated in the sport, according to the March indictment.
While Huffman, 56, almost immediately admitted to her crimes, and as of today is serving a 14-day prison sentence, Loughlin, 55, demands she’s not guilty of a crime, and continues to enjoy her freedom.
But in an interview with WCVB Channel 5 Boston, Andrew Lelling, the U.S Attorney for of Massachusetts, said that may not be in her best interest.
“We will probably ask for a higher sentence for Loughlin than we did for Felicity Huffman,” Lelling revealed. “I can’t tell you what that would be… it’s tough to tell at this point.”
Lelling went on to note how Huffman and Loughlin’s cases are very different, before praising Huffman for handling her situation in “a very classy way.”
“It just happened to be that Ms. Huffman was probably the least culpable of the defendants who we’ve charged in that case,” Lelling said. “She took responsibility almost immediately, she was contrite, did not try to minimize her conduct. I think she handled it in a very classy way.”
As Loughlin continues to enjoy her freedom – for now – take a look through this Radar gallery to learn more about how she spends her free time.
Loughlin was spotted Tuesday, October 15, leaving a yoga class.
The actress was wearing a pair of bright blue leggings, with a bright pink jacket on her upper half.
She kept her emotions in check under a wide-brimmed hat and designer sunglasses.
A pair of ear buds seemed to block out repetitive questions about her guilt or innocence.
Loughlin rejected a plea deal not long after her arrest. She and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty.
They each face as many as 40 years behind bars.
That would give her plenty of time to work on a much-rumored book about the situation
"She’s talking to agents about turning her prison experience into a cash-grabbing book and movie,” one insider said. “They’ve assured her it will make millions.”
Meanwhile, Huffman officially checked into prison on Tuesday to begin her 14-day sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal.
She will spend the next 14 days behind bars, after pleading guilty to a fraud conspiracy charge in a Boston courtroom on May 13. She was also slapped with a $30,000 fine and community service.
