Ought to Mossimo Giannulli Be Allowed To Serve His Sentence At House?
Should Mossimo Giannulli be allowed to serve his jail sentence for the college admissions scandal at home? That’s the question many people are asking as it became known that the 57-year-old requested early release to serve his sentence at home but was ultimately denied. Mossimo is serving a five-month sentence in California’s Lompoc Correctional Facility and is due to be released on April 17, 2021 as he plays a role in the varsity blues scandal that took his two daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, into the University of Southern California with a $ 500,000 bribe. Mossimo was convicted along with his wife, the actress Lori Loughlinwho spent two months in prison. Lori Loughlin served her sentence from October 30, 2020 to her release date on December 28, 2020. Mossimo began his sentence on November 19, 2020.
Due to the deadly coronavirus pandemic, Mossimo was placed in solitary confinement and had been in solitary confinement for 56 days at the time he applied for early release.

Mossimo’s family and supporters believe 56 days of solitary confinement is gruesome and unusual for the crime Mossimo was convicted of. His legal team presented his case and found that his emotional wellbeing was compromised, but it was unsuccessful.
The toll is not only felt by Mossimo. Lori Loughlin is reportedly in distress along with the couple’s children.
Speaking to Life & Style for its February 8, 2021 issue, a source discussed Lori Loughlin’s fears for Mossimo’s emotional health since incarceration and in solitary confinement. The source stated the following.

On January 13, 2021, Mossimo Giannulli was moved from solitary confinement to a camp with minimal security and is now allowed to spend some time outside.
