Actress Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty to the college admissions scandal.
She is accused of paying a consultant, Rick Singer, $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to improve her older daughter's SAT score. Authorities also say that while she thought about doing the same with her younger daughter, she did not go through with it.
Felicity released a statement saying her daughter knew absolutely nothing about it and that she is "ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.”
Twelve other parents also pleaded guilty in cases involving everything from rigging standardized test scores to bribing coaches.
One name that was noticeably absent from the list of defendants who agreed to enter guilty pleas was Lori Loughlin. According to a former prosecutor, that's a risk that could hurt the “Fuller House” star's chances of cutting a favorable deal down the line. He said: “The deal for people who pled out today – they got the best deal possible. Again, even though there was the seven to nine months of possible prison time, the deal is in that zero to six range – which is the lowest you’re going to get.”
