BOSTON (AP) — Actress Felicity Huffman has arrived at a federal courthouse to face allegations she paid a college admissions consultant $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT score.
The “Desperate Housewives” star walked into Boston’s federal court late Wednesday morning, hours before she was set to appear before a judge.
Huffman is among 33 parents charged in what authorities have called the biggest college admissions scam ever prosecuted.
Other parents expected to appear in court Wednesday include fellow actress Lori Loughlin and Loughlin’s fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli.
Loughlin and Giannulli are accused of paying $500,000 to have their two daughters labeled as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team, even though neither participated in the sport.
Huffman, Loughlin and Giannulli have not publicly addressed the allegations against them.
