Felicity Huffman to plead guilty in college admissions scam

Open this

Prosecutors in MA recommended a four-month prison sentence for actor Felicity Huffman on Monday after she formally entered her guilty plea in a college admissions scandal, court documents indicate.

The "Desperate Housewives" actress was accompanied in court by her brother, Moore Huffman Jr.

Huffman and Singer exchanged multiple emails on how to provide her daughter with "100 percent" extra time to take the SAT exam, an affidavit of the complaint claims, and arranged for her to take the test in a location controlled by an administrator who allegedly Singer bribed to protect the test and secretly correct her answers afterwards. She was accused of agreeing to pay William "Rick" Singer, the accused mastermind of the scheme, thousands of dollars to help her daughter with her college admissions process. Huffman, who admitted to paying $15,000 to adjust her daughter's SAT score, agreed to plead guilty in April. Officials say he bought athletic gear online and worked with a designer to create a bogus photo of his son playing the sport for the application.

Huffman is scheduled to plead guilty alongside another parent charged in the case, California businessman Devin Sloane, who prosecutors said paid Singer $250,000 to help his oldest son gain admission to USC as a purported water polo recruit. Beyond Huffman Macy's own potential jail time and the fall-out from all that, today's guilty plea must also certainly leave Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, wondering: if those who bow to the feds and take the plea are still facing months of time in federal prison, what might be in store for us?!

Following Adducci's win, a USA Today report revealed he has a long criminal history with multiple domestic violence convictions. Tiger's Grand Slam chase will continue next weekend in Famingdale with the 2019 PGA Championship , which begins on Thursday.

Still, as of her most recent appearance in court, Huffman's fate remains unknown, though it's possible she could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison for the conspiracy charge.

Huffman has apologized and said her daughter was unaware of her actions. Singer confessed to unlawfully helping children from numerous extremely affluent families cheat on standardized tests, also bribed a number of NCAA coaches to falsely designate the children as recruited athletes, thereby greatly lowering the minimum academic standard required for admission at prestigious schools such as Georgetown and Yale.

Experts differ on whether Huffman's swift acceptance of responsibility will leave her with an acting career. A limited series featuring Huffman on the Central Park Five case is expected to debut this month.

Singer has pleaded guilty to charges including racketeering conspiracy.
