“Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty Monday to paying $15,000 to have someone correct her daughter’s SAT test answers.
Huffman, who pleaded guilty to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, entered court holding hands with her brother. She maintains that her daughter had no idea that her parents paid to fudge her test scores. Prosecutors are reportedly recommending that Huffman serve four months in prison and pay a $20,000 fine.
Along with “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin, Huffman is among the two most high-profile people charged in connection to a widespread college admissions scandal at elite American universities. An FBI sting, known as “Operation Varsity Blues, identified and charged 50 people, mostly wealthy parents, for bribing or cheating their children’s way into several Ivy League universities, including Yale.
