Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty over her role in the sweeping college admissions scandal, according to Page Six. Fourteen parents in total are pleading guilty, federal prosecutors say.
Lori Loughlin, who has also been accused in the case, is not among those pleading guilty.
Huffman released a statement saying: "I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office. 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," the statement continued. "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. 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."
Huffman reportedly paid $15,000 to get her daughter help cheating on her SATs. Her husband William H. Macy was not charged.
