Updated On 04 Apr, 2019 Published On

Felicity Huffman arrived at a Boston courthouse for her hearing for her alleged involvement in a college admissions scam on Wednesday, April 3.

Huffman, 56, appeared to wear a black peacoat, black pants and a turquoise blouse while entering the federal courthouse of John Joseph Moakley United States Courthouse at approx. 11 a.m. She had donned a black blazer under the jacket.

Her husband, William H. Macy, was not present, but an unidentified man in a suit was there to support her.

The Desperate Housewives alum appeared before Magistrate Judge M. Page Kelley at 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

As we previously reported, the Cake actress was arrested at gunpoint on March 13. She was one of nearly 50 people, including Fuller House star Lori Loughlin, who were involved in the scandal to help their children get into prestigious colleges.

Loughlin was taken into custody on March 13, one day after her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, was indicted.

According to the court documents obtained, Huffman "made a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 … to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter."

The judge told defendants that the suspects may face a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison.
