Prosecutors are determined to see that Hollywood actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman receive jail time for their part in the elite college bribery case, according to a report.
Deadline reported Wednesday that jail time for the actresses appears more and more likely. Sources told the Tinseltown-focused website that law enforcement officials have signaled that Loughlin and Huffman could serve between six months and just under two years behind bars. However, their level of cooperation with the investigation will ultimately dictate the length of their sentences and fines, Deadlines source added. .
The Hallmark Channel, where Loughlin starred in popular holiday movies and the series When Calls the Heart, cut ties with her a day after her arrest.
Huffman, the 56-year-old former Desperate Housewives star, is charged with paying the admissions consultant at the center of the scheme $15,000 to have a proctor correct the answers on her daughters SAT.
The two actresses and Giannulli said little during the brief hearing in a packed Boston courtroom and were not asked to enter a plea. They remain free on bail. Several other parents were given similar hearings of a few minutes each.

I’ll believe it when i see it.
As far as either of them seeing the inside of a jail? As the Japanese say, "Nevaah haaapaan."
I don’t understand the furor.
One third of college students are admitted because of skin color, gender, or sexual preference.
The people who paid bribes are being punished because they are white, attractive, and affluent.
Spot on; these crooks will serve as examples of what happens to wealthy whites who circumvent the preferential treatment of certain preferred minorities.
I have no sympathy; I’m a white guy who couldn’t buy my childrens’ way into those schools. No more of this “affirmative action for thee, but not for me” crap...
Are they going to jail the obamas? They and their kids (his step kids) did not get into college on merit.
