Huffman agreed to plead guilty for "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud" in April. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Times notes, prosecutors have said they would recommend capping her sentence at just four months. She submitted her official plea before Judge Indira Talwani on Monday.
During the hearing, prosecutors said they will recommend that Huffman which is one of dozens of parents ensnared in the nationwide admissions cheating scandal serve four months in prison, pay a $20,000 fine and spend a year on supervised release after her prison time.
Still, as of her most recent appearance in court, Huffman's fate remains unknown, though it's possible she could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison for the conspiracy charge.
Huffman has apologized and said her daughter was unaware of her actions.
"I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's office", Huffman said in a statement released last month.
She is married to William H. Macy, 69, star of the television show "Shameless" and numerous Hollywood films including Fargo.
Sloane and Huffman join three other parents who have pleaded guilty so far in the scheme. The mother-of-two fraudulently had someone take her daughter's SATs in order for her to receive a high score and be accepted into university.Читайте также: Baytown officer fatally shoots woman after struggle over Taser
According to court documents, Huffman paid Singer's Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) $15,000.
"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", she wrote.
Prosecutors have charged 33 parents with participating in the scheme with Mr. Singer, including Ms. Huffman, who was nominated for an Oscar for best actress for her role in 2005's Transamerica, and Lori Loughlin, who starred in the TV series Full House.
Loughlin and Giannulli were among the parents who did not plead guilty initially, and now face an indictment for money laundering in addition to the original fraud charge.
Macy has not been charged and prosecutors have not explained why. Huffman paid Singer $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter's SAT answers and considered going through with the plan for her younger daughter before deciding not to, authorities say.
Authorities say Sloane gave $250,000 to an admissions consultant's sham charity and the USC women's athletic program and to have his son designated as a water polo recruit even though he didn't play the sport.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
