Felicity Huffman ‘guilty’ sa college admission scandal
By Ruel Mendoza
Handa nang harapin ng “Desperate Housewives” star na si Felicity Huffman ang consequences na ipapataw sa kanya ng korte. Nag-plead guilty ang Emmy award-winning actress to charges of mail fraud and honest services mail fraud nearly two months after being arrested in a college admissions scandal.
SaBoston courtroom, nag-guilty plea si Huffman. Ayon sa NBC News:
“Prosecutors recommended a sentence of four months prison time.”
Ibababa ang sentence ni Huffman on September 13.
Ayon pa sa aktres, she took “full responsibility” sa kanyang mga ginawa at wala raw alam ang kanyang anak sa kanyang mga naging transactions.
“I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office. 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. I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.
“My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.”
Since the scandal, deleted na ang social media accounts ni Huffman.
