Prosecutors Claim Olivia Jade Knew Exactly What Was Going On
Her parents, Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, are getting sentenced on Friday.
While Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have had a weekend to let their sentences sink in — five months for him, two for her — sources close to the family say that they're "terrified" about serving their jail time and are trying to ensure that they don't head to prison at the same time. For the sake of their daughters, Isabella Rose and Olivia Jade, the parents want to make sure that at least one of them is at home so that the kids aren't on their own.
"They are terrified about going to jail," an insider told E! News. "Nothing has been decided about where they are serving. That's up to the government to determine."

The source explained that Loughlin and Giannulli want to try and make the situation seamless for their daughters. To do so, they want one parent to be at home while the other serves their sentence.
"They don't want to have any overlap and leave the girls on their own," the source added. "They are trying to work out a way that one of them can be in L.A. with the girls while the other is serving their sentence."
The family is still processing the news, the source adds, but that they're glad that the uncertainty is gone and that they can start to move on from everything that's happened over the past year.
"Everyone is on edge and just trying to hold it together and stay strong," the source finished. "The family is staying strong and positive and looking forward to putting this behind them."
During her sentencing hearing, Loughlin told the judge that she was doing everything in her power to give her children what she thought they needed, saying, "I thought I was acting out of love for my children but in reality it only underlined and diminished my daughters' abilities and accomplishments. More broadly and more importantly, I now understand that my decision helped exacerbate existing inequalities in society generally and the higher education system more specifically."
