Actress Lori Loughlin was photographed when she pumped gas in California after arguing for non-guilty in the university admission scandal.
The 55-year-old star of the Fuller House TV show was in activewear gear, a big hat, and dark sunglasses next to her black Mercedes Benz on Wednesday.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, 56, were accused of conspiring to commit money laundering and conspiracy to commit mail and electronic fraud.
Allegedly they have paid $ 500,000 to get daughters Olivia (19) and Isabella (21) at the University of Southern California. The couple denies the allegations.
On Tuesday, director Devin Sloane was sentenced to four months in prison for his role in the scandal, after Felicity Huffman received 14 days.

Both Huffman and Sloane took pleadings, which are believed to have resulted in milder penalties.
They were among at least 51 parents who were investigated as part of the scandal called Operation Varsity Blues by FBI investigators.
Of that figure, at least 15 have pleaded guilty or agreed to plead guilty, according to the Washington Post.
Parents are said to have paid between $ 200,000 and $ 6.5 million for their children to be admitted to colleges and universities in America.
If Louglin and Giannulli are found guilty, many think they can face serious penalties, including long prison sentences.
Huffman received her sentence on September 13 after she had paid a fixer to cheat SAT from daughter Sophia Grace Macy in 2017.
The judge also ordered her to do 250 hours of community service and a fine of $ 30,000.
He noted that her punishment was less because of paying one of the smaller bribes from all the accused parents, as well as quickly admitting her misconduct and not involving her daughter in the plan.
Sloane pleaded guilty to fraud and conspiracy after admitting using fake documents on 25 September.
He also staged his son's photos in front of the family's swimming pool in an attempt to make him look like a water polo star. In reality, he had never played.
In addition to the prison time, he was sentenced to 500 hours of community service and a fine of $ 95,000.

Louglin and Giannulli are accused of paying half a million dollars in bribes to admit their daughters to USC via a sports route – as part of the rowing team.
Neither daughter had rowed competitively. It is claimed that they have sent $ 50,000 to Donna Heinel, the senior athletic athletic director at USC, along with $ 200,000 to Key Worldwide Foundation.
The alleged bribes started when their eldest daughter, Isabella Rose Giannulli, went to study. The couple would have followed a similar approach to get their youngest daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli to school.
James Cohen, a law professor at Fordham University in New York, told USA today that each count the couple is confronted with has a minimum of five years in prison
He said: & # 39; And the fines are pretty substantial – in the hundreds of thousands of dollars – but the fines seem to be the least worry of these people.
& # 39; So you have a potential prison sentence and there will probably be more than one count for each individual.
& # 39; So you have a possibility of both imprisonment and a substantial fine on the individual points. & # 39;
