as prosecutors call for actress to spend just ONE MONTH in jail after she pleaded guilty in admissions scandal
Felicity Huffman has been recommended to spend just one month in jail in connection to the college admissions scandal where she pleaded guilty in April to mail fraud and honest services fraud.
The actress wrote in a letter delivered to a Boston judge on Friday that believed she was giving her daughter with a learning disability a 'fair shot' by paying $15,000 for a SAT test to be corrected to help Sophia gain entry to the University of Southern California.
After prosecutors originally called for Huffman to spend between four and 10 months locked up, the recommendation filed Friday by the U.S. Attorney's office asked for her to be jailed for 30 days.
Following her time inside, Huffman, 56, will be on supervised released for a year if prosecutors - who described her acts as 'deliberate and manifestly criminal' - get their way.
'In the context of this case, neither probation nor home confinement (in a large home in the Hollywood Hills with an infinity pool) would constitute meaningful punishment or deter others from committing similar crimes,' prosecutors wrote to the judge about Huffman, who is married to 69-year-old Shameless star William H. Macy.
Felicity is mother to daughters Sophia, 19, and Georgia, 17, and admitted to paying for a proctor to correct wrong answers on Sophia's exams.
Huffman routed her payment though admissions official Singer via his nonprofit Key Worldwide Foundation; prosecutors said the aforementioned foundation was set up as a front to accept payoffs.
Prosecutors added: 'Her efforts weren't driven by need or desperation, but by a sense of entitlement, or at least moral cluelessness, facilitated by wealth and insularity'.

I bet she won't spend 1 millisecond behind bars, she'll end up with a little community service where she can look pretty at a food pantry or soup kitchen pretending to care about the "little people".
I seriously doubt, however stupid this Hollyweird slut's kid is, that many of the ghetto scored higher SATs. Does not matter.
If you have forgotten, they do not have to score well, they have a legislated advantage, no rich parents needed.
On the other side, LL can give me $500,000. Not for college (again). I have a few classic cars I’d like to buy.
I just want a fair shot, like Felicity Huffman’s kids.
She needs to check her white privilege.
The only way any of her offspring will survive any tough times is if her money can carry them. They didnt learn anything, because they werent forced or led to learn. When wolves eat they dine on the stupid, weak, and the unsuspecting. Youre either a carnivore or prey.
Admissions is a scam a con and deprives many who are well qualified for admission but, are subordinated to those who claim their race should give them entitlement for admission and lowered expectations for performance....
Not many at all, the bell curve is real. If there were brilliant inner city kids they’d get the scholarships to go, universities fight each other for the very few that can make it. They airbrush in minorities to their brochures for gods sake.
I guess now we know one reason.
Parents should encourage their kids to go on to vocational schools or community colleges. Not as prestigious as the ivies, but chances are they’ll actually be better off financially without the student loan debt. Not to mention better off intellectually.
We are way past Peak Brick ans Mortar College.
Whatever they have on offer is rapidly declining in actual content.
Just paying close attention to CNN for four years is likely an equivalent edumacation.
If she spends 30 days in jail, it will be far more for far less than what Hillary Clinton should get. Talk about “criminal and deliberate”.
It is not ghetto kids being left out in the cold...most of them get all sorts of points just for... well being there, being a minority or thug trying to get their life back together.
Those left out are middle class..upper middle class whites- especially boys, no special bonus points. They are about to even leapfrog over them with illegals!
regular people don't have a chance.....especially whites without a big fat bankroll...
ultimately, society will correct itself when businesses, health care, industry, agriculture, etc all go to hell because good people aren't hired...
Awful lot of famous horsefaces. This one, AOC, Stormy, Sarah Jessica Parker, that one with Affleck...probably from the Horsehead Nebula.
The irony is that there would be more slots for American kids if there weren’t so many (mainly Chinese) foreigners attending American colleges. Her daughter may be unfit to attend, but foreign enrollment is an issue.
More like Hollywood privilege.
Sounds like mom took the medicine and sent some money to conservative types.
And an all expenses paid multiple month extended tour of southeast asia, every year, for life
I am on board for this social justice!
>> I bet she won’t spend 1 millisecond behind bars
Huffman is nothing more than a buyer.
