Actress Lori Loughlin will serve two months in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal. 

The actress was sentenced Friday along with her husband Mossimo Giannulli who received a five-month term.

They spoke out Friday for the first time since their arrest. Both apologized for paying half a million dollars in bribes to get their daughters into the University of Southern California. 

Loughlin told a judge her actions "helped exacerbate existing inequalities in society" and that she knows she made an "awful decision".  

Loughlin and Giannulli maintained their innocence for over a year. They claimed they made "legitimate donations" to their daughters' schools and accused federal prosecutors involved in the Varsity Blues investigation of omitting crucial evidence. However, when a judge rejected those arguments, they changed their pleas to guilty.

Loughlin, best known for playing Aunt Becky in the sitcom "Full House," will have to pay a $250,000 fine, complete 250 hours of community service and undergo two additional years of supervised release. She and her husband must surrender to prison by November 19.
