Lori Loughlin has been released from prison after completing a two-month sentence for her part in the U.S. college admissions scandal.

According to People, a legal source has confirmed the Fuller House actress was released from the Federal Correctional Institution in California, early on Monday morning.

The disgraced actress began a two-month sentence on 30 October after she admitted to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud and one count of honest services wire and mail fraud.

The couple, part of a scandal in which more than 50 parents allegedly bribed their children's way into prestigious universities, paid $500,000 (£370,000) 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 27 December.

The mum of two, who has paid off her $150,000 (£114,000) fine, will now have to spend two years on supervised release, and complete 100 hours of community service.

Giannulli, who was sentenced to five months behind bars, has paid a $250,000 (£190,000) fine and will serve 250 hours of community service upon his release.
