Lori Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli is officially a free man.

The 57-year-old fashion designer has been released from home confinement, ending his five-month sentence for his role in the college admissions scandal one day earlier than scheduled. Jail records show Giannulli's release date was on Friday, April 16.

A couple of weeks ago, over Easter weekend, Giannulli was permitted to leave a prison facility near Santa Barbara, Calif. and serve the remainder of his sentence at home with his family while technically remaining under the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons and wearing an ankle monitor. His 30-year-old son, Gianni, drove to pick him up.

"Everyone is extremely relieved that he was released and can finally start to breathe again," a source close to Loughlin told E! News earlier this month. "Lori was especially concerned and very anxious while he was in prison. She is very grateful to have him home." 

The source added that Giannulli and his family are "hopeful about the future and being able to get their lives back on track. They are more than ready to move on and put this behind them."

Giannulli and Loughlin, best known for her role of Aunt Becky on the '90s sitcom Full House and Netflix's sequel series Fuller House, were both among a group of about 50 people charged in an alleged racketeering scam to help rich Americans get their kids into elite universities. The couple was accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to have their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, admitted to the University of Southern California as rowing team recruits despite the fact they were not rowers.

Loughlin completed her own prison sentence, shortened to less than two months, just after Christmas last year.
