Prosecutors announced Thursday that actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Massimo Giannulli, would plead guilty in the national college admissions scandal.

Loughlin had maintained her innocence, but she reportedly will plead guilty to conspiring to get her daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though they weren’t involved in the sport.

Giannulli also agreed to plead guilty to a criminal charge, prosecutors said.

Gossip magazines reported that Loughlin regretted not taking a plea earlier, and feared that she could face a long term in prison.

Under the plea, Loughlin reportedly faces two months in prison, and Giannulli faces five months. The couple will also have to pay a total of $400,000 in fines and perform community service.
