Felicity Huffman officially pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy to commit mail and honest service frauds in the Varsity Blues college scandal. Her lawyers have recommended that she receive a $20,000 fine and four months of incarceration in exchange for the plea — but Huffman reportedly has hopes for a different sentence.
“I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community,” she said in a statement released in April. “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.”
A source claiming to be close to Huffman told Us Weekly that she's prepared to serve the four months if she is sentenced, but she is “hopeful that she’s a suitable candidate for a halfway house instead of prison confinement."
Meanwhile, another famous actress at the center of the scandal, Lori Loughlin, is expecting possible additional legal troubles with USC.
"Lori feels that USC is going to do whatever is necessary to attempt to financially ruin her family," another source told Us Weekly. "USC accepts extremely substantial donations, which will typically result with a child from that family enrolling. Lori wants to expose USC’s admission practices and looks forward to her day in criminal court."
