Felicity Huffman pleads guilty in college admissions scandal

A source tells ET that Huffman appeared to fight back tears when she spoke to the judge on Monday, noting that her daughter always required extra time on her tests since her daughter was 11 years old. The couple also considered using Singer's services for their younger daughter, but ultimately opted not to, according to a criminal complaint. Prosecutors said her score improved by 400 points.

The star is due to appear in court on Monday to enter a guilty plea, nearly exactly two months after her arrest. Singer also bribed college coaches to falsely certify that students had been recruited for the school's sports teams, further facilitating their path to admission, regardless of their athletic abilities, prosecutors said. Federal prosecutors are aiming for a sentence between four and ten months in federal prison on the guilty plea. In court, she wore a gray dress and a sweater and sat flanked by her attorneys while her brother watched from the front row.

She has apologized and says she will accept the consequences.

Huffman's daughter was reportedly unaware of her mother's involvement in the scheme.

Sources previously said to Us Weekly that Lori and her lawyers believe that when the public gets all of the information, they won't have the same negative view of her as they once did. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty". The Key Worldwide Foundation, whose purported mission was to help "underserved children" pursue an education, has since been exposed as Singer's vehicle for laundering payments from parents and paying bribes to college coaches, administrators and exam proctors. Huffman's husband William H. Macy was not charged with any crimes. Prosecutors have not explained why.

Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty on Monday to allegations she paid a fake charity $15,000 to rig her daughter's SAT score in a bid to secure her a spot in a prominent university.

Devin Sloane, a California businessman tied to the college admission scandal, also pleaded guilty.

Singer pleaded guilty in March to racketeering, money laundering; conspiracy to defraud the U.S., and obstruction of justice. He began working with authorities past year and secretly recorded his conversations with actress Lori Loughlin, Huffman and other parents in the hopes of getting a lenient sentence.

In April, Huffman issued a statement apologizing for her actions.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen recommended the four-month sentence, which was scheduled to be handed down September 13.
