BOSTON (AP) – Actress Felicity Huffman is set to plead guilty to participating in the sweeping college admissions bribery scheme.
The “Desperate Housewives” star is scheduled to appear Monday in Boston federal court.
Huffman was among 50 people charged in March in what authorities have called the largest college admissions cheating scandal ever prosecuted in the U.S.
The Emmy-award winning actress was accused of paying $15,000 to have a proctor correct the answers on daughter’s SAT exam.
Huffman has said she takes full responsibility and will accept the consequences.
Prosecutors say they will seek between four and 10 months in prison.
Thirteen other parents have also agreed to plead guilty.
Parents still fighting the charges include fellow actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli.
