Lori Loughlin Felicity Huffman Guilty Plea

As Felicity Huffman awaits sentencing Friday after pleading guilty for her role in the Varsity Blues scandal, some "friends" of Lori Loughlin's are wishing that she had entered the same plea.

“Lori’s friends are concerned," an unnamed source told Us Weekly. "They say she should have followed [Felicity] Huffman’s lead and taken a plea deal and accepted responsibility."

Huffman admitted that she paid $15,000 to have a proctor correct answers on her daughter Sofia’s SAT tests in order to boost her college admissions prospects, while Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have denied knowingly breaking the law when they allegedly paid $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli, into USC. The couple didn't get a plea deal, but they have waived their rights to separate attorneys. Their next court date is October 2 for a status hearing in the case.

Meanwhile, as Huffman faces sentencing on Friday, she will be armed with 27 character letters of support, including one from her husband, William H. Macy, and one from former Desperate Housewives co-star Eva Longoria. Huffman's legal team has asked for one year of probation and community service, while the prosecution has asked for one month of jail time.
