Felicity Huffman Should Serve One Month in Jail for College Admissions Case, Prosecutors Say

The Wrap Friday, 6 September 2019 ()
Federal prosecutors have recommended a one-month jail sentence for Felicity Huffman for the charge against her in the nationwide college admissions cheating case.

United States Attorney Andrew Lelling made the recommendation in a sentencing memo filed in federal court on Friday. The actress will be formally sentenced on Sept. 13 in a Boston court. Prosecutors added that following Huffman’s one-month incarceration, she should have an additional year of probation and a $20,000 fine.

In May, Huffman pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. At that time, federal prosecutors recommended a sentence of four months.

Huffman and her spouse — “Shameless” star William H. Macy, who was not charged — made a charitable donation of $15,000 to participate in a college entrance exam cheating scheme led by Rick Singer, on behalf of her oldest daughter. Huffman had initially planned to do the same thing for her youngest daughter, before backing out.

Huffman, along with actress Lori Loughlin, was arrested in March as part of a nationwide college admissions cheating case. In total, the people arrested were charged with paying bribes of up to $6 million to get their children into top universities like Yale, Stanford, Georgetown and USC in what authorities described as the “largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”

Pamela Chelin contributed to this report.
