Huffman pleaded guilty in federal court to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter's answers on the Saturday.

After the exam, Riddell corrected her answers, giving her a score of 1420-an improvement of 400 points from her PSAT, which the affidavit said she took a year earlier, without Riddell. Prosecutors have said the investigation is ongoing.

Prosecutors have charged 33 parents with participating in the scheme with Singer, including Huffman, who was nominated for an Oscar for best actress for her role in 2005's "Transamerica", and Lori Loughlin, who starred in the TV series "Full House".

Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to rig her daughter's SAT scores.

"I didn't want to give the impression the neuropsychologist knew about this", Huffman told the courtroom. They are scheduled to be sentenced in September. Prosecutors recommended that Huffman be sentenced to anywhere from four to 10 months in prison, followed by 12 months of supervised release and a $20,000 fine.

She arrived at Boston federal court holding her brother Moore Huffman Junior's hand and remained silent as she entered the building for the afternoon hearing.

Crying, Huffman, who is married to the actor William H. Macy, stressed that her daughter did not know about the crime.

In April, Huffman issued a statement apologizing for her actions.

Huffman later discussed the scheme in a recorded phone call with Singer, the complaint says. "This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty", Huffman said. The Key Worldwide Foundation, whose purported mission was to help "underserved children" pursue an education, has since been exposed as Singer's vehicle for laundering payments from parents and paying bribes to college coaches, administrators and exam proctors.

Huffman and Macy agreed to it, according to a FBI affidavit filed in federal court. Prosecutors have not explained why.

The 56-year-old's guilty plea makes her the highest-profiled person, so far, to admit to the allegations, the AP reported.

Sloane, the water systems executive, paid Singer and an alleged accomplice $250,000 to ensure that Sloane's son, who attended the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, was admitted to USC as a recruited water polo player.

Authorities have called it the biggest college admissions cheating scandal ever prosecuted in the USA, ensnaring Hollywood stars and business executives as well as coaches at such prestigious schools as Georgetown and Yale. The amount is the lowest paid in the college admissions scandal.

The parents are accused of paying Singer to bribe coaches in exchange for helping their children get into schools as fake athletic recruits. According to TMZ, Loughlin's husband Mossimo Giannulli was arrested and she plans to turn herself in when she returns to L.A. She was among 13 parents who have said they would plead guilty in the scam, reports CNN.
