It's going to be a cruel summer for Lori Loughlin.

In the end, the decision to plead guilty wound up coming as a relief for the couple and their daughters. "Lori's concern all along has been Isabella and Olivia Jade".

A federal judge gave the California couple an August 21 court date, after they copped to conspiracy charges earlier this month in the massive scam, Boston25 News reported.

"Our clients would obviously like to have finality on this process", Trach told the judge when the couple pleaded guilty last week on a video conference.

The source claims that "Lori Loughlin is now preparing to be interviewed by the Bureau of Prisons for the pre-sentencing report which will be given to the judge to be used as guidance for formal sentencing'". As reported, the Full House star has confessed to one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud, while her husband admitted to one count of honest services wire and mail fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit wire and mail fraud. Lori Loughlin will be sentenced to serve two months in prison and her husband Mossimo will be sentenced for five months, subject to the court's approval.

Both could also spend two years on supervised release.

Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli are hoping that their respective prison sentences don't happen at the same time.

"The girls have been very supportive of their parents throughout this whole ordeal", a legal source tells PEOPLE of the couple's daughters Olivia Jade, 20, and Isabella Rose, 21.

"At this point, they just want to find out their fate and to serve whatever time they need to serve, so they can move on with their lives and close this chapter", the source added.
