Felicity Huffman to be sentenced for role in college admissions scheme

BOSTON (AP) — The first parent to be sentenced in the college admissions scheme is schedule to appear in federal court in Boston Friday.

Actress Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty in May to a single count of conspiracy and fraud. She admitted to paying $15,000 to boost her older daughter’s SAT scores in 2017 with the help of William “Rick” Singer, an admission consultant at the center of the scheme.

Prosecutors have recommended a month in prison, along with supervised release and a $20,000 fine.
