Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty In College Admissions Scam

Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty In College Admissions Scam”

Actress Felicity Huffman formally pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in federal court in Boston on Monday, CNN reports.

They also suggested a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release for the charge, which is a felony.

Actress Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty to charges stemming from her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Eric Rosen, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of MA said that prosecutors are also looking for one-year of supervised release and around $20,000 in fines.

Court documents filed in April indicated the Desperate Housewives star and 13 other defendants in the scheme planned to plead guilty. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, didn't attend.

Sources previously said to Us Weekly that Lori and her lawyers believe that when the public gets all of the information, they won't have the same negative view of her as they once did.

Huffman's statement concluded, "My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her".

Felicity Huffman became the face of the Varsity Blues scandal in which wealthy parents were arrested for attempting to rig the system and get their children into top universities and colleges.

"I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions", Huffman said in a statement last month.

The consultant, Rick Singer, arranged for the cheating by having students obtain permission for extra time on the exams through diagnoses for things like learning disabilities, and then taking the exams at his testing centre, prosecutors say.

Sentencing was set for September 13.

The parents are accused of paying an admissions consultant to bribe coaches in exchange for helping their children get into school as athletic recruits. After receiving extended time for the SAT, Macy's exam was moved from her high school, where a proctor would be provided, to the West Hollywood Test Center, where Mark Riddell could proctor the exam, according to the affidavit.

Rosen said the government wasn't alleging that Huffman's daughter inappropriately got extra time, but rather focused on the arrangements Huffman made for her daughter during that extra time.

Some parents have chose to fight the charges.

Thirteen other parents have also said they will plead guilty, while others, like Lori Loughlin, are still fighting the charges.
