Lori Loughlin reportedly has her heart set on a Christmas spent at home with family. This sentiment comes despite a current two-month prison sentence, which would appear to keep her behind bars until the final days of December.
But as several outlets have reported, the Full House actress could be due for a Christmas Day or Christmas Eve release, after she began her two-month sentence strategically on Oct. 30.
Lori Loughlin: Christmas prison release in the cards?
According to CBS News, Loughlin's release date is scheduled for Dec. 27, which would mark 60 days at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. However, the 27th is a Sunday, and policy goes that inmates may get an early release if the day falls over a weekend or on a holiday.
The Dec. 26-27 weekend would push Loughlin forward to a Friday release—but that's Christmas Day, a holiday, so she could even be released on Christmas Eve. In all, it could trim a handful of days off the two-month sentence.
Felicity Huffman took advantage of same release policy
When Loughlin reported to prison on Oct. 30, reports said that her team had eyes on a release no later than New Year's Eve, and that date is set for Dec. 27—and, now, possibly several days earlier.
Felicity Huffman also completed her 14-day sentence just days before Loughlin began her own. Like Loughlin is now attempting, Huffman took advantage of the weekend release date policy, only serving 11 of her 14 days before getting released on Oct. 25.
In addition to her jail time, Loughlin must pay a $150,000 fine, perform 100 hours of community service, and faces two years supervised upon her release. Her husband Mossimo Giannulli reportedly must begin his five-month sentence by Nov. 19, which he has not yet done.
