The 'Fuller House' actress along with her husband is asking a judge to have their $1 million bonds lowered after pleading guilty to charges related to college admission scandal.

AceShowbiz - Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli are desperate to have their $1 million (£800,000) bonds lowered to $100,000 (£80,000) each.

The pair's bond was originally set in March, 2019, and the "Fuller House" star will be sentenced on 21 August (20), after pleading guilty in May to charges of paying $500,000 (£400,000) to fixer William 'Rick' Singer to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella, admitted to the University of Southern California .

According to The Mercury News, prosecutors have agreed to the new sum, with Loughlin and Giannulli's lawyers writing, "There is no indication that defendants will flee rather than face sentencing," in a memo.

They're also seeking the removal of the requirement that their bonds be secured by a lien on their home, which is currently on the market. According to reports, the pair is looking to sell the mansion to Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen for $18 million (£14 million).

The deal they struck with prosecutors carried the recommendation of a two-month prison sentence for Loughlin, and a five-month sentence for Giannulli, though Judge Gorton may amend the terms.

Felicity Huffman, the other prominent celebrity implicated in the admissions scandal, was sentenced to 14 days in prison beginning in October, 2019, of which she served 11.
