Actress Felicity Huffman could spend close to a year in jail for her role in the massive college admissions scandal. John worked alongside Felicity on Desperate Housewives, and he admitted that he was surprised with her involvement. Whereas if Huffman's own figures are held up by the court instead, the sentence will only be for anywhere from 0 to six months in prison.

According to the charges, Huffman paid $15,000 (€13,270) to William Singer, a consultant at the centre of the case, so a proctor would correct some of her daughter's answers on the test after she had finished the test and left. The latter has pleaded not guilty to the charges levied against her, which are quite significant.

In a plea agreement, prosecutors said that Ms. Huffman's crime corresponded to a federal sentencing guideline of four to 10 months in prison and that they would recommend a sentence at the low end of that range, along with a fine of $20,000 and 12 months of supervised release.

‘Zelda: Breath of the Wild’ Technical Director Explains Labo VR Support
The idea for this started when the Nintendo Labo development team gave us a demonstration of the VR Goggles for the first time. As it's a third-person game, the team feels it's a unique use of the VR Goggles compared to what's in their Toy-Con kit.

Actress Lori Loughlin, who played Aunt Becky on "Full House", and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli are also accused of paying bribes to get their daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, though neither participated in the sport.

For pleading guilty, Huffman is expected to receive a reduced sentence and prosecutors will decline to bring further charges, CNN reports. Although the scandal only involved Felicity's oldest daughter, Sofia, who is now still in high school and had no knowledge of her mother's doing, the Desperate Housewives star was allegedly thinking of doing the same thing with her other daughter, Georgia Grace, 17, but ultimately decided not to.
