Actress Lori Loughlin's husband, Mossimo Giannulli, has left the federal prison he was being held at for the last five months for his role in the college admissions scandal. 

The 57-year-old fashion designer has been transferred to RRM Long Beach, which is a residential re-entry facility, according to online prison records. RRM Long Beach is described as a minimum-security halfway house or residential re-entry management field office, Fox News reported. These types of facilities provide federal offenders with community-based services that will assist with their re-entry needs.

It is unclear whether Giannulli has returned home. 

Giannulli reported to a federal prison in Lompoc, near Santa Barbara, in November. In January he requested that he spend the remainder of his sentence at home, after being quarantined for two months, but a judge ruled against the request. 

"Giannulli is not entitled to a modification of his sentence because he has not demonstrated an 'extraordinary and compelling' reason warranting his release," Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton wrote in a court order obtained by People. "Although the Court recognizes the danger associated with COVID-19 and the particular risk of transmission in penitentiary facilities, the fear of COVID-19 alone, without more, is insufficient to warrant release."

Giannulli's attorneys filed the request several days prior, explaining that he was initially meant to "be quarantined with other minimum security prisoners for a short period of time before being confirmed COVID-negative, and then released from quarantine to serve his sentence at the minimum-security camp." 

He was instead placed into solitary confinement.

It is standard practice for a prison to test its inmates for the coronavirus upon entering and then 14 days later. Although Giannulli's results came back negative upon testing, he was placed in quarantine for an extra two weeks after several other inmates in his initial quarantine unit tested positive, Yahoo Entertainment reported. Giannulli then complained of suffering from COVID-19 symptoms. He was re-tested and, when the results came back negative, he was released from isolation.

The filing came weeks after Loughlin was released from prison after spending two months behind bars. 

The high-profile couple admitted in May to paying $500,000 to get their two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits even though neither girl was a rower. In addition to their prison sentences, Loughlin was ordered to pay a $150,000 fine and complete 100 hours of community service while Giannulli was ordered to pay $250,000 and complete 250 hours of community service.
