Desperate Housewives actor Felicity Huffman was spotted in search of a new car on Friday as she sought to put her involvement in the Varsity Blues college admissions scandal firmly in the rearview mirror

She seemed to want to keep a low profile as she walked to the car showroom with sunglasses and a face mask as she picked up the keys to her new vehicle

The purchase comes days after it was revealed that she has now completed her probation and is officially a free woman

She spent nearly two weeks behind bars late last year in a federal lockdown in Dublin, Calif., after admitting to paying $ 15,000 to have someone correct the answers to the entrance exam for his daughter

Huffman decided to make the purchase to celebrate the end of his probation in the college admissions scandal

Meanwhile, Full House actor Lori Loughlin has signaled the same California prison to start serving his two-month sentence for his role in the college admissions corruption scandal, reported the authorities on Friday

The US Boston District Attorney’s Office says Loughlin is under federal lockdown in Dublin, California

‘The parties recently agreed that the accused can report to the prison on October 30, 2020 instead of November 19, 2020 The defendant has further agreed that during her two-month sentence she will not seek release early jail for COVID-related reasons,  » prosecutors said in a statement

As part of Bureau of Prisons coronavirus protocols, Loughlin will be screened and tested for COVID-19 and will be placed in quarantine for 14 days

The low-security northern California prison houses 874 inmates and has two positive cases of coronavirus among inmates according to federal statistics

In August, Loughlin was sentenced to two months and her husband, fashion designer, Mossimo Giannulli, was sentenced to five months for paying half a million dollars in bribes to bring their two daughters , Olivia Jade, 21, and Bella Giannulli, 22, at the University of Southern California as rowing recruits

According to E! Online, couple’s daughters are reportedly gearing up for ‘tough holiday season this year’ with mom in prison

‘The girls were there to say goodbye before Lori left It was a big time for their family and everyone was very upset Although the girls knew it was coming and they had the time to prepare, it is always devastating to see their mother leave,  » a source said

‘Olivia and Bella are very distraught over it They are grateful it’s for only two months, but they are anxious to know that they will have a very different and difficult holiday season this year’

Lori with the couple’s daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Friday, she went to a California jail to begin her two-month sentence for her role in the college corruption program

“Lori said goodbye to Mossimo and was accompanied by her lawyer in jail,” a source told E. “She was very nervous but she wanted to start and end with It’s been hanging over her head ever since so long She hopes she can be home for the holidays and put that behind her ‘

The plea deals with the celebrity couple ask Loughlin to pay a fine of $ 150,000 and perform 100 hours of community service, and Giannulli to pay a fine of $ 250,000 and perform 250 hours of community service

The famous couple’s conviction came three months after turning the tide and admitting to taking part in the college admission cheat program, which exposed the efforts of some wealthy parents to bring in their children in elite universities

They are among nearly 30 prominent parents to plead guilty in this case, which federal prosecutors have dubbed «  Operation Varsity Blues  »

Actor Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, had insisted for over a year that they believed their payments were « legitimate donations »

He discovered heavy bribes to bring undeserving kids to college with faked test results or fake athletic credentials

Loughlin and Giannulli had insisted for more than a year that they believed their payments were ‘legitimate donations’ and accused prosecutors of hiding crucial evidence that could prove the couple’s innocence because it would harm their case

The affair shattered the net image of Loughlin, who gained fame for her role as healthy aunt Becky on the ‘Full House’ sitcom which took place from the late 1980s to mid-1990s, then became Queen of the Hallmark Channel with her holiday movies and the ‘When Calls the Heart’ series

Prosecutors said Giannulli deserved a harsher sentence because he was ‘the most active participant in the program’, while Loughlin ‘had played a less active role, but was nonetheless fully complicit’

The couple funneled money through a fictitious charity run by Rick Singer – the admissions consultant at the center of the program – to bring their two daughters to USC as crew recruits, though neither was a rower, authorities said Singer, who also pleaded guilty, was expected to testify against them if they had been tried

Investigators had recorded phone calls and emails showing the couple were working with Singer to bring their daughters to USC with fake sports profiles portraying them as star rowers

In an email, Singer told Loughlin and Giannulli that he needed a photo of their eldest daughter on a rower in training gear ‘like a real athlete’

Prosecutors said the couple allowed the girls to ‘become complicit in a crime’, asking them to pose on rowers for photos and warn their younger daughter not to say too much to his high school counselor to avoid getting caught
