Lori Loughlin Hires Prison Coach to Learn Martial Arts

Actress Lori Loughlin may finally be coming to terms with her potential time in jail for her role in the college admissions scandal.

The “Full House” star, best known for her role as “Aunt Becky,” reportedly hired a prison coach to teach her martial arts, according to Radar Online. However, prison consultant John Fuller told FOX Business’ Neil Cavuto that her instructor is giving her bad guidance.

“Whoever gave her that advice — was clearly the worst advice that she’s received thus far,” he said Friday.

Fuller said inmates are able to watch TV, and “if she thinks she’s going to go in there and bully other inmates or actually defend herself she’s wrong” because multiple prisoners would “deliberately” target her. Fuller noted when a Brazilian jiu-jitsu professor, who was jailed for raping and killing his 1-year-old son, he was reportedly gang raped repeatedly for hours after news spread of his crime.

“That was someone who specialized in martial arts,” Fuller said.

“If [Loughlin] is with a prison consultant and she’s practicing fighting, then obviously they are preparing her to be in disrespectful situations and that doesn’t happen often in prison camps because people behave themselves down to that particular custody level,” he explained.

However, Fuller said there are certain “prison etiquettes that you can’t ignore.”

“You don’t simply sit on someone’s bed to tie your shoe because you may be assigned to an upper bunk and this person’s on a lower bunk,” he said. “That’s an invitation for sexual advancement in prison.”

Even so, Loughlin can “navigate” the nuances as long as “her prison consultant is as experienced as she thinks he is.” Fuller said if Loughlin accepts responsibility she would likely face less than 18 months in prison.
