Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty in College Admissions Scandal

Felicity Huffman to formally plead guilty in college admissions scam

Felicity Huffman has arrived at court in Boston and is expected to plead guilty to paying $15,000 to have a proctor boost her daughter's SAT scores.

Prosecutors on Monday recommended Huffman, who was arrested in March, receive four months behind bars.

In the company of her brother appeared to Huffman in court on Monday, reported the U.S. magazine "People".

Huffman is facing serious criminal charges for a college bribery scandal, in which she paid $15,000 to have her daughter's SAT scores altered.

Felicity Huffman is ready to face the consequences for her actions.

Another 10 parents have said they will also plead guilty in the scandal that saw some of the accused pay as much as $400,000 to get their children into their chosen college.

The department later said that it successfully rescued the two window washers who were stuck. Video from the scene showed the lift banging against the building and breaking windows.


Federal prosecutors recommended a four-month prison sentence, a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release.

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 center, prosecutors say.

While some parents, including Huffman, reportedly paid off standardized testing proctors, others, allegedly including Loughlin, used bribes to get their children admitted as athletic recruits.

The judge will wait to sentence Huffman until she gets a PSR (pre-sentence report).

Huffman pleaded guilty alongside another parent charged in the case, California businessman Devin Sloane, who prosecutors said paid Singer 250,000 USA dollars to help his oldest son gain admission to USC as a purported water polo recruit.

The 56-year-old actress entered the plea Monday to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Felicity Huffman broke down in tears as she pleaded guilty in the college entrance fraud case she is involved in.

Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty to charges of mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in the nationwide USA college admissions cheating scheme.

Huffman, who is married to the actor William H. Macy, said in an April statement her daughter "knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her".

Singer recorded a number of conversations in which he and wealthy parents discussed these schemes, including a conversation with Huffman.

"Yes, your honor", Huffman answered.

Riddell has pleaded guilty to fraud conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy; he will be sentenced in July. In truth, Sloane's son did not play water polo and his high school did not field a team, prosecutors say.
