Felicity Huffman Makes a Bold Confession After Pleading Guilty

Whoa -- this is a pretty big development in the college admissions scandal case. Entertainment Tonight reports that actress Felicity Huffman will plead guilty to the charges brought against her, which will set her up to be able to accept a plea deal. She allegedly paid a consultant $15,000 to help her daughter cheat on her SAT exam.

Felicity not only says she has "deep regret and shame" over her actions and is accepting full responsibility, but she also made a confession that could affect her family life forever.

She said in a statement, "My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her." Felicity also apologized to her family. Interestingly enough, her husband, William H. Macy, has yet to comment on the scandal, and he also was not with her when she appeared in court in Boston to face the charges. 

As far as the plea deal goes, Felicity could face a maximum of 20 years in prison, though something tells us her sentence won't be quite that extreme. 

Prosecutors announced that 13 parents would be pleading guilty, but we are not sure whether Lori Loughlin will be doing the same, as she was not mentioned in the statement.
