Felicity Huffman has plead guilty in the college scandal case in which she paid $15,000 to have her daughters SAT scores rigged. The former “Desperate Housewive” actress is one of 24 who plead guilty on Monday to charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest service mail fraud.
Prosecutors want her to do 4-10 months in federal prison, but she is pushing for a maximum of 4 months in prison and a $20,000 fine. Ultimately, the judge will decide. She will be sentenced in September, 4 months from now.
Felicity released a statement saying she was ashamed of the pain she caused her daughter and her family, adding, “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.”
