Besides serving five months in prison, the fashion designer has agreed to pay a $250k fine, two years of supervised release like his wife, and a whopping 250 hours of community service. “Under the plea agreements filed today, these defendants will serve prison terms reflecting their respective roles in a conspiracy to corrupt the college admissions process and which are consistent with prior sentences in this case. We will continue to pursue accountability for undermining the integrity of college admissions,” United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling revealed in a statement.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, who tied the knot in 1997, are accused of paying $500,000 to college admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer to get their daughters — one of whom is YouTube star Olivia Jade — admitted to the University of Southern California as sham recruits for the crew team, even though neither of them ever participated in the sport. Actress Felicity Huffman was also caught up in the scandal and only ordered a two-week sentence for her involvement regarding her daughter. She only served eleven days.
