Tearful Felicity Huffman admits role in U.S. college admissions scandal

Share

Huffman arrived at the courthouse holding hands with her brother Moore Huffman Jr.

Singer told investigators he went to Huffman's home in 2017 and explained to the actress and her husband, actor William H. Macy, how the scheme worked. Singer then facilitated cheating on Huffman's daughter's SAT test by having a proctor correct the teen's answers after the fact.

Last month, Huffman released a formal statement apologizing for her actions and announcing her intentions to plead guilty, one of 13 parents involved in the alleged scam to do so; other parents, including Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin, submitted not guilty pleas. (Along with a $20,000 fine and 12 years' worth of supervision upon her release.) It's also possible that Huffman could end up getting no time at all; if she successfully argues that her crime accords with a lower guideline, she would only be sentenced to zero to six months behind bars.

Loughlin has pleaded not guilty to charges that she and her husband agreed with Singer to pay $500,000 to have their two daughters named as recruits to USC's crew team, even though they did not row.

Huffman and Sloane are among 14 parents who agreed to plead guilty in the biggest admissions scandal ever prosecuted in the us, known as "Operation Varsity Blues". Because Sloane paid far more than Huffman to participate in Singer's scheme, prosecutors have recommended he spend a year in prison and pay a $75,000 fine.

The "Desperate Housewives" star appeared in a federal courtroom in Boston and admitted she paid $15,000 to a fraudulent charity to arrange for cheating on her daughter's SAT test. This was 400 points higher than her Preliminary SAT scores.

Huffman has apologized and said her daughter was unaware of her actions. An assistant USA attorney stated in the courtroom that the government will request that Huffman be sentenced to four months in prison and a fine of $20,000.

Huffman's daughter, Sophia Macy, was not charged. The legendary lifestyle guru, of course, had her own legal drama in the past, when she served a five-month sentence in a federal corrections facility from 2004 to 2005 after being convicted of multiple felony charges.

"I had no knowledge of Mr. Singer paying (others)", Huffman said Monday before crying.

Huffman, 56, agreed to plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in April.

Singer has pleaded guilty to charges including racketeering conspiracy. Seventeen other parents, including Loughlin, have chose to fight the charges and formally submitted not guilty pleas.
