Lori Loughlin appeared to be focusing on fitness as she faces potential jail time for her alleged role in the college admissions scandal that has rocked Hollywood.

The 54-year-old was spotted in spandex leaving a yoga class on Thursday in Los Angeles.

Her outing comes as a source claims that the Full House alum is increasingly more confident that she will never see the inside of a cell, according to People Magazine.

The mother of two was dressed in an attention grabbing yoga ensemble wearing a pair of bubble gum pink sandals and a matching pink zip up along with purple cropped leggings.

Lori had clearly worked up a sweat in the class and was seen heading to her car in a parking garage, makeup-free with her sandy blonde hair pulled up.

She carried a blue rolled up yoga mat, a striped gym bag and her cellphone which had a pair of earbuds plugged in that were also nestled in her ears.

The When Calls the Heart star and her husband, designer Mossimo Gianulli are at the center of Operation Varsity Blues after allegedly paying $500,000 in bribes to get their two daughters Isabella and Olivia Jade into USC.

In April, Lori pleaded not guilty to the charges stemming from the scandal and seems to think she will likely get off without jail time.

‘The more that [the attorneys] look at the alleged evidence against them, the better they feel about the case,’ a source close to Lori told People. ‘Everyone is feeling more and more confident that this could end well for them.’ 

The couple is among 50 prominent parents, athletic coaches and others charged in a sweeping college admissions bribery scam that has embroiled elite schools across the country, such as Stanford, Georgetown and Yale.

A handful of parents entered guilty pleas to the initial charges, including actress Felicity Huffman, and those who did not were later indicted on additional superseding charges.  

'The more that [the attorneys] look at the alleged evidence against them, the better they feel about the case,' a source close to Lori told People. 'Everyone is feeling more and more confident that this could end well for them.'

An insider told People that Lori ‘would like’ the case to go to trial.   

Adding: ‘[She] feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, that she won’t be found guilty.’

Loughlin and Giannulli filed court documents waiving their right to appear for an arraignment and entered not guilty pleas to the charges against them. 

A Boston judge granted their requests, meaning they will not have to show up at federal court to be formally arraigned.  

The parents who have been charged are accused of paying admissions consultant Rick Singer to rig standardized test scores and bribe college coaches and other insiders to get their children into selective schools.

While Loughlin, famous for playing wholesome Aunt Becky on Full House, may think she will win in court, the damage has been done in the court of public opinion. 

‘Lori feels like so much damage has been done publicly that the only way for her to counter it is to fight this case in court,’ the same source previously told People. ‘She feels like once all the evidence is presented, that people will understand how things happened.’ 

The actresses career has suffered in the wake of the scandal and so has her influencer daughters.  ‘[She] feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, that she won’t be found guilty.”[She] feels like she’s got a valid defense, and that when all the evidence comes out, that she won’t be found guilty.’

Olivia Jade is reportedly just now back on speaking terms with her parents after moving out of their home following their arrests. 

Sources say she blames them for the destruction of her career on YouTube and the loss of lucrative makeup collaborations.  

‘Olivia was angry with her parents at first, but now realizes that they were just trying to do what’s best for her,’ an insider explained to Us Weekly.

After staying out of the public eye for a bit, Olivia has been spotted out more and more, recently shopping with friends at the lux department store Fred Segal.
