    Convict!! No more white privilege. You’re a felon now. And for what for your college drop outs.

    All this for paying to get a kid in college. Prosecutor should apologize to the victims of violent crimes that he is not prosecuting. Should have been a fine and done.

    The sentence seems fair .

    What’s the bet she won’t do the full 2 months.
    Couple of excuses will be covid19 or overcrowding and she’ll do about 10 days.
    Hope they both go into prison at the same time

    • Andrei Z Reply

      @Sicklady ok so why aren’t they all over the news getting humiliated and punished besides the sentence they’ve gotten…

    • Sicklady Reply

      Andrei Z —because they aren’t famous or a public figures.

      If they didn’t do anything wrong, their lives wouldn’t be ruined or be humiliated, yes?

      a vacation you say being strip searched told when you can shower told when to go to sleep no option but to eat bad food forced to sleep in a room and share a bathroom with 100 other convicted felons and not being able to leave. i dont know your living situation but for a millionaire this is not a vacation for most people its not a vacation.

  15. KTH MD Reply

    The punishment is soft for their “slip” in judgment. They have taught their daughters that money, status and looks get you further in life than a decent honest education. I can’t believe that their girls have been kept out of the legal aspect – they are both old enough to know the difference between right and wrong. They both posed for the camera on the rowing machine in hopes that they could deceive the education system instead of consciously deciding their future education should be based on academic honesty. If Olivia Jade and Isabella could not get in on their own merritt, why would they strive to be a fraud? Wouldn’t you want to begin your adult life acknowledging what your strengths and weaknesses are? Wouldn’t you feel completely horrified that your own parents don’t believe in you and your intelligence enough that you can’t possibly get accepted to a school solely based on your grades and achievements? I don’t understand the amount of entitlement that they have raised their children to have. Sadly their family’s nightmare is just beginning. The consequences of their actions are going to haunt them all for the rest of their lives. I pray that their daughters can separate themselves from this awful scandal and start living their lives honestly.

    • GH1618 Reply

      Jane Fonda — There are several factors that go into sentencing. Judges are trained in sentencing. In this case, the judge is also considering all the related cases so the sentences will be comparable, taking into account the facts of the individual case.

      What you think the sentence should be is not a factor.

    • Annihilate MAGA Cult Reply

      @GH1618 the question is how do you become a judge in the states? i heard its easier than becoming a cop which is already hilarious. it seems you give people jobs for whom they are not qualified enough.

    She got away way too easy,she will be out in 4 weeks or less

  30. Angelina Suazo Reply

    I am actually sad for Lori. I have always liked her, I think she has a basicly good personality.
    I had hoped that Lori would only get 3-4 months of at-home probation, and that she’d be able to work off her probation with regular visits to her probation officer, and that she could attend manditory classes, where she could prove her reform, and serious recovery, by completing the requirements, and showing a willingness, and diligence to change, and comply with the authorities. But I don’t believe that prison is the answer. (Believe me, they can put people on a very rigorous schedule, living on the outside, being on probation, keeping convicted people busy!!). To me, that would have been enough for Lori to “learn her lesson”.
    I also believe that even though this was basicly a selfish indulgent thing for her to take part in, I honestly believe that Lori’s actions, and decisions, were based on the age-old fact of her love for her little girls! Maybe she had been persueded that this was a good idea, and she fell prey to temptation. We all fall short, we all are guilty of something.
    I have watched Lori Loughlin for most of my life. I first saw Lori when I was 8 yrs.old, going on 9, in the winter months of 1974. We had a big thick Sears & Roebuck catalog, and I saw Lori in the catalog, a girl of about 10-12, modeling girls underwear, and white jersey tops, worn under shirts.
    She hadn’t got into acting, or any show biz yet, at that time. And then when I saw her years later on television, I recognized that this was the same person I saw in the Sears catalog!
    I feel bad that Lori was crying, when hearing her sentencing. I am crying for her inside too.

    They are still multi-millionaires, and their daughters will never have to work. Easy privileged life. They might as well be on another planet compared to what everyday people have to go through.

      Lori and her husband Mossimo have just sold a property and downsized to a brand new $9.5 million home in Hidden Hills. One of their daughters Olivia Jade has a “job?” as an

    So Aunt Becky is going to prison. I say great. I doubt it will be a full two months however. If the judge was so amazed at what she did, why did he give her 90 days to turn herself in? If it was anyone else they would have left the courtroom in shackles and belly chains! So she is still getting special treatment!

    Like when they framed Martha Stewart for insider trading and then only found her guilty of somehow lying to prosecuters during interrogation, it is just these judges spiting women for living seemingly charmed lives and being successful. The judge is the one who is arrogant, possessed of inexplicable hubris, and is dumfounded as in having a foundation in stupidity. REMOVE HIM FROM THE BENCH. He doens’t know her life and how hard she worked or that man her husband’s either. He is sentencing her for having a charmed life and wants her to suffer for the rest of it? This is justice in the USA? This is prejudice against women. The judge is a horrible judgmental person.

  55. John Edward Jones Reply

    What a way to show, “love.” Seems like an arrogant airhead. Had plenty of time to show remorse months ago. Instead she and hubby fought and fought using sketchy conspiracy evidence.

    A couple months in a minimum security facility is a joke. They deserve years in a real prison. Once again it shows if you have money you can buy your way out. Black men get years for having a small amount of weed in their pocket. No justice here.

    100 hours community service she’ll do at some animal shelter for the rich and famous.
    Lastly, Lori Loughlin and her husband will never serve a day in jail, why ?
    Why do you think she and her husband first fought the charges then suddenly changed their minds ?
    Because they watch the news and saw many low level offenders being released from jails and prisons due to the Covid-19 virus and she and her husband are betting they won’t have to actually serve time in prison for the same reason.
    The lesson here ?, Justice is not blind in America when it comes to fame and money.

    59 And said, “Just think of it! Not too long ago, a mighty warrior, Joshua, great, mighty servant of God, crossed the river, in the Springtime, set up the tents, right in front of the enemy. One day, while studying his a strategy for the attack upon Jericho, one evening while walking out, or one morning, looking the gates all over, and how great it was. They could run chariot races on top of it, horses, several abreast, around the gate. How Joshua was looking. He looked standing over against the wall, and there stood a Man with His sword drawed. Joshua drew his sword and went to meet Him. Joshua screamed out, said, ‘Are You with us or are You one of our enemies?’ He said, ‘Nay, I’m the Captain of the host of the Lord.’ The mighty Joshua throwed his sword on the ground, and took off his helmet and fell at His feet.” 60 Blind Bartimaeus thinking, “That wasn’t five hundred yards from where I’m sitting right now. Where the mighty host of the Lord, the Captain of the host, and Joshua bowed at His feet. Oh, if I had only been there in them tents, blind then, I’d have asked the mighty Captain of the Lord’s host if He would give me my sight, and He would have done it.” Little did he know that that same Captain was less than a hundred yards from him. 61 That’s what we make our failures, tonight. We try to place all the glory, and Christ, way back in another age. The Bible said, “He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” He is just as much here in this building, tonight, as He ever walked in Galilee or Jerusalem.
