NEW YORK — “Full House” star Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have pleaded guilty to paying half a million dollars to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California.

However, U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton said Friday at the couple’s video hearing that he will decide whether to accept their plea deals after considering a presentencing report.

He scheduled their sentencing for Aug. 21.

Loughlin is seeking to spend two months in prison, and Giannulli is proposing five months.

They are among dozens of wealthy parents, coaches and others charged last year in the broad college admissions scheme.
