Felicity Huffman & 13 Others Indicted In Bribery Scandal Expected To Plead Guilty
Felicity Huffman’s day of reckoning is coming. The actress who was indicted alongside Lori Loughlin and several other people in a college admissions bribery scandal is planning on pleading guilty, the AJC reports.
As previously reported federal prosecutors claimed they all participated in a scheme aimed at getting students into elite colleges. The defendants allegedly used an admissions company to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and falsify athletic records.
Now federal officials say that Huffman along with 13 other people will enter guilty pleas tied to plea deals.
The 56-year-old is accused of paying an admissions consultant at least $15,000 to rig her eldest daughter’s college entrance exam. She reportedly disguised the payment as a charitable donation, authorities said in a complaint filed in court shared by The AJC.
Huffman’s expected to plead guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
No word yet on whether or Lori “Aunt Becky” Loughlin will plead guilty as well.
