Actress Felicity Huffman pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

Felicity Huffman to formally plead guilty in college admissions scam Felicity Huffman Expected To Plead Guilty Today In College Admission Scandal

She appeared at a federal court in Boston yesterday holding her brother's hand and said nothing to reporters as she entered. Singer then facilitated cheating on Huffman's daughter's SAT test by having a proctor correct the teen's answers after the fact.

Devin Sloane, a Los Angeles resident and executive of a water systems company, also pleaded guilty Monday in Boston to a fraud conspiracy charge.

Prosecutors on Monday recommended Huffman, who was arrested in March, receive four months behind bars and a $20,000 fine.

Sloane and Huffman join three other parents who have pleaded guilty so far in the scheme. Prosecutors have amassed a heap of financial records and have recorded phone calls between the parents and with the scheme mastermind, William "Rick" Singer.

After Huffman agreed to plead guilty, Netflix officials said a film starring her, "Otherhood", would not be released as planned in April and a new date would be determined. According to court documents, Huffman and Singer exchanged emails arranging how Singer could provide Huffman's daughter with extra time to take the SATs and ensuring that her exam would be proctored by an administrator whom Singer had bribed. The money was disguised as a donation to Singer's charitable foundation, prosecutors said. "I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly".

Singer pleaded guilty in March to racketeering, money laundering; conspiracy to defraud the United States, and obstruction of justice. Because Huffman agreed to plead guilty, prosecutors have promised to recommend a sentence at the low end of that range, but the judge will make the decision on September 14. which could include not sending the star to jail at all.

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her", the statement continued. For example, one payoff of $6.5 million to Singer has not yet resulted in charges. Both Huffman and Macy agreed to the plan, authorities say, but Macy has not been charged. This was 400 points higher than her Preliminary SAT scores.

For reasons that remain unclear, Macy has not been charged.

"Many parents today have lost sight of what's best for our children and have hijacked their youth's academic career because they do not want their children to risk failure or setback", Watts said.
