When asked if Loughlin and her husband should serve jail time she responded with: “I think they don’t deserve jail time, we need to save the jails for the bad people who have done violent crimes, she should be doing community service, give donations, pay a fee, sponsor a school.

Loughlin and the rest of the people who decide to buy their children into school should face consequences but do not deserve to face jail time.
