Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty in College Admissions Scam

Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty in that college admissions scam.

In a statement, the former Desperate Housewives star says, "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."

The actress, along with 12 other parents, enter guilty pleas today (Monday), according to TMZ. Felicity, who allegedly paid $15,000 to boost her daughter's SAT score, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud as well as honest services mail fraud.

She added, "I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community."

As part of her plea deal, prosecutors will recommend she serve four to 10 months behind bars and pay a fine.

Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, were not part of the plea deal. TMZ reports Tuesday morning that the pair were offered a minimum of two years behind bars.
