“Fuller House” star Lori Loughlin is reportedly “remorseful” about the college admission scandal earlier this year and wants it to be finished.

Lori is ready for this to be over,” an unnamed “legal source” told People magazine. “They all are. At this point, it would be better to spend a few months in jail — because she’s been spending the last several months in her own prison.”

Ms. Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli were indicted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts as two of 50 parents and officials accused of faking athletic skills and SAT scores to get their children into high-profile universities.

Ms. Loughlin and Mr. Giannulli are accused of shelling out $500,000 for their two daughters to be admitted to University of Southern California as members of the crew team, although neither participated in the sport they were recruited for.

Despite 14 defendants, including actress Felicity Huffman, all pleading guilty, Ms. Loughlin and Mr. Giannulli, declined a plea.

While many have criticized Ms. Loughlin as looking unbothered by the events, the legal source said she is “remorseful, and she has definite regrets,” the source tells People about Ms. Loughlin, 56.

“She’s embarrassed and hurt, and she knows that her reputation has been ruined for life. But she also believes the allegations against her aren’t true,” they said. “She honestly didn’t think what she was doing was any different than donating money for a library or athletic field. That’s the crux of why she pleaded not guilty.”

The husband and wife will appear in court on August 27th.
