- Actress Felicity Huffman will plead guilty on May 13 to her role in the large-scale college admissions cheating scheme that involved several elite universities and wealthy parents across the country.
- Huffman was originally scheduled to plea on May 21 in Boston federal court, but the date was moved up since the lead prosecutor won’t be available.
- Earlier this month, the actress of “Desperate Housewives” fame, agreed to enter a guilty plea on charges of honest services mail fraud and committing mail fraud.
- According to authorities, Huffman paid $15,000 to have someone change incorrect answers on her daughter’s SAT exam to boost her chances of getting into college.
- Huffman was among dozens of parents charged for their involvement in the scheme, along with coaches at the universities who accepted bribes.
