Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have been granted permission by a federal judge to vacation in Mexico, after both having completed their prison sentences for their roles in the college admissions scandal.
According to court documents obtained by ET, Loughlin, 56, and Giannulli, 57, filed court documents earlier this month, asking the court if they could take a five-day vacation to San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico, in June "to spend time with [their] family." A federal judge approved the request on Friday. The trip will mark the first time either Loughlin or Giannulli has left the country since being released from prison.
While Loughlin -- who was released from prison in December -- has finished her community service and paid her $150,000 fine, Giannulli is still working on completing his 250 hours of community service. Giannulli, who completed his 5-month sentence last month, has paid his fine of $250,000.
Loughlin and Giannulli went to prison for paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, Isabella and Olivia Jade, admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, though neither of them had ever participated in the sport. They initially pleaded not guilty to all charges leveled against them, claiming their payments were donations to the school and not bribes. However, Loughlin and Giannulli later agreed to plea deals.
