  • Felicity Huffman will spend 14 days in prison for her role in what authorities have called the largest college admissions scam ever prosecuted.

    The "Desperate Housewives" actress also will have to serve one year of probation, perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine as part of the sentence handed down in federal court in Boston on Friday.

    Huffman — the first of more than 30 parents charged in the scheme to be sentenced — was accused of paying $15,000 to the scam's mastermind to boost her daughter's SAT scores.
    She had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. Her lawyers asked for no jail time, one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $20,000 fine.

    From Hong Kong! So the US Government and the Justice System is going after these two caring American moms. I guess O.J Simpson , sitting in his cozy living room in his big beautiful mansion, is probably laughing his head off right about now.

                      They should change the college admissions at USC, for one. Maybe UCLA, too. They should just accept Hollywood elites. Since they all want to be in show business.

                          I can't look at her hubby, William H. Macy, without seeing him as his character in Jurassic Park III, Paul Kirby. But he looks like a nice enough guy who shouldn't have been dragged into this mess.

                                    They should slap the kids on the wrist too. In the real world if you commit a crime with your parents you get in trouble too and no one cares you didn't know the details. I don't believe these sums of money either, only 15k with what these people had at stake!?!And yes that's one case but it does not make sense. Where are the cash payments that is what I want to know. With the blatant privilege that does exist there is no need to talk.
