After entering her guilty plea in the varsity blues scandal, disgraced actress Felicity Huffman is facing four months in jail, TMZ reports. She was reportedly weeping while entering her plea. A judge told the 56-year-old she was waiving her right to a trial; she agreed.
After entering the plea, an assistant U.S. attorney said that the government will request a four-month prison sentence and a $20,000 fine. The prosecution then noted that Huffman’s sentence will be comparably light because she agreed to cooperate. They charged her with conspiracy to commit mail fraud, for paying Rick Singer $15K to help her daughter cheat on her SAT.
She previously released a statement saying: “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.”
