Actress could get jail over college admissions scandal

Felicity Huffman

Huffman and prosecutors say her daughter had no knowledge of the scheme.

The consultant, William Singer, and his associate, Mark Riddell, have both pleaded guilty in the scheme, as have over a dozen parents in addition to Huffman. Unlike Huffman, they are fighting the charges. (L) at the federal court in Boston, Mass., on April 3, 2019.

Prosecutors have asked that Huffman receive a one-month prison sentence when she appears before U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani on Sept 13 as the first parent to be sentenced in the scandal. "Not because the defendants' relative wealth has generated public resentment, but because jail is a particularly meaningful response to this kind of offense". "In prison everyone is treated the same, dressed the same, and intermingled regardless of affluence, position or fame".

Macy said their older daughter had paid the highest price for Huffman's actions; her heart was set on a school that, he noted, does not require SAT scores.

She wrote that she was guilty of the crime she committed, and knew she could have said "no", to the process but in her "desperation to be a good mother, I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot". Yes, there is a bigger picture, but ultimately it doesn't matter because I could have said "No" to cheating on the SAT scores.

"To be sure Felicity's relationship with her daughters exploded on March 12th and rebuilding that relationship will be a long process". "I honestly didn't and don't care about my daughter going to a prestigious college". I don't know why she always felt like she had to protect me.

"But Felicity stood up for me, saying it was fair because the success of the show depended on all of us, not one of us".

In her letter of support, Longoria also recalled how Huffman consoled her after she was the sole leading lady on Desperate Housewives not nominated for a Golden Globe after the show's memorable first season. She wanted her daughter to be judged for her acting ability. I could only say, 'I am sorry. "We still had a serious problem and, according to him, he had the solution", she said.

"I have a deep and abiding shame over what I have done". Felicity's attorney's submitted various letters to the judge, testifying on her character, including one from her latina powerhouse friend.

Justin Dougherty, an anchor and reporter for 7News, tweeted a portion of Huffman's official request, where the actress's attorneys "respectfully" requested she "be sentenced to a one-year term of probation, with a [sic] 250 hours of community service as a special condition of probation, and the $20,000 fine called for by the Plea Agreement".
