Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty

Felicity Huffman is pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in what has come to be known as the college admission scandal.

In a statement released to the media on Monday afternoon, Huffman accepted her guilt and insisted that her daughter Sophia Grace Macy was unaware of her mother's involvement in her college application process.

"I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office," her statement reads. "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. I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly."

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her," she continued. "This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty."

Another famous actress who has been implicated in the scandal was not among the 13 parents (and one university athletic coach) who pled guilty on April 8.

ICYMI, former Fuller House star Lori Loughlin appeared with Huffman on April 3 at a preliminary hearing in U.S. District Court in Boston, where they were read their federal felony charges. 

This past weekend, Loughlin was casually "caught" by paparazzi while out and about with one of her daughters, Isabella Rose Giannulli. Her other daughter, Olivia Jade, has lost lucrative endorsement deals with Sephora and TRESemme since the scandal broke, and is allegedly furious with her.

Lori has not entered a plea as of press time.
