Lori Loughlin Turns to Church and Prayer While in Prison

By Movieguide® Staff

Lori Loughlin is reportedly using her prison sentence to draw closer to the Lord.

The 56-year-old WHEN CALLS THE HEART is almost halfway into her two-month prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal. Loughlin arrived at Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., in late October and hopes for a release the week of Christmas.

According to Us Weekly, Loughlin said her first night in prison was discouraging but soon established a routine that includes prayer. 

Us Weekly reported that Loughlin, a mother of two, regularly attends church services at the federal correctional facility.

“Lori has been praying a lot,” Us Weekly’s source said. 

Other than a small circle of inmates she calls friends, Loughlin keeps to herself.

As of August, the former FULLER HOUSE and Hallmark star Lori Loughlin will serve two months in prison for her involvement in the college admissions scandal, which also involved Loughlin’s husband fashion designer, Mossimo Giannulli.  

The couple pleaded guilty after months of denying the allegations that arose from $500,000 payments made to alleged mastermind William Rick Singer, founder of the for-profit college prep business, Edge College & Career Network. 

The Loughlin family is hopeful for an early release before Christmas. The agency sometimes allows for the early release of inmates whose departures fall on a legal holiday, or as in Loughlin’s case, on the weekend.

“The Bureau of Prisons may release an inmate whose release date falls on a Saturday, Sunday or legal holiday, on the last preceding weekday unless it is necessary to detain the inmate for another jurisdiction seeking custody under a detainer, or for any other reason which might indicate that the inmate should not be released until the inmate’s scheduled release date,” the BOP states on its website.

Movieguide® honored multiple WHEN CALLS THE HEART episodes our Movieguide® Awards Gala and Report to the Entertainment Industry over the years, including episodes “The Last Christmas” and “Lost and Found” which was nominated for the EPIPHANY PRIZE FOR MOST INSPIRING TELEVISION PROGRAM OF 2014.

Movieguide® prays that Loughlin will seek God and that He would use her prison sentence to transform her so that the actress can return to God-honoring content.
