Felicity Huffman to Plead Guilty to Charges of Fraud For College Admission Scandal

Updated On 09 Apr, 2019 Published On

Fifteen parents, including actress Felicity Huffman and a university athletic coach, have agreed to plead guilty to charges of fraud for getting involved in college admission scandals, the U.S. Attorney’s Office confirmed on Monday, April 8.

The Desperate Housewives star was one of 33 parents who were initially charged in the scam. She was arrested on March 12 and released on a $250,000 bond.

According to the complaint, the actress was charged with "one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud." She reportedly paid $15,000 to consultant William Singer in order to help her daughter, Sofia, 18, boosting her SAT score.

William admitted to hiring a separate proctor who monitored the exam and corrected answers. Sofia scored 1420 on the SATs, which is 400 points higher than she scored on the PSAT.

Fuller House star Lori Loughlin was also among those parents. She was taken into custody on March 13. She allegedly paid $500,000 in exchange for having her daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team.

One week after the arrest of Huffman and Lori, an upset mom named Jennifer Kay Toy filed a $500 billion lawsuit against them and many other parents for taking the college spot of her son Joshua.
