Felicity Huffman Opens Up About Involvement in College Admissions Scandal

Felicity Huffman, the 60-year-old actress known for her role in “Desperate Housewives,” has spoken out for the first time about her participation in the college admissions scandal. In 2019, Huffman served 11 days in prison after paying $15,000 to Rick Singer, the mastermind behind the scandal, to have her daughter’s SAT scores corrected. She also paid a $30,000 fine, completed 250 hours of community service, and was on supervised release for one year. Huffman completed her sentence in October 2020.

During an interview with ABC-7 Eyewitness News, which aired on Thursday, Huffman reflected on the circumstances that led her to commit the crimes. She explained that she had worked with a recommended college counselor named Rick Singer for a year and trusted his expertise. Singer eventually informed her that her daughter would not be accepted into the desired colleges, leading Huffman to believe that participating in the criminal scheme was her only option to secure her daughter’s future.

Huffman admitted that she did not inform her daughter about the plans and started having second thoughts as she drove her to take the exam. Despite her reservations, she proceeded with the scheme. Huffman expressed regret for her actions and acknowledged that she felt compelled to break the law in order to give her daughter a chance at a future.

Earlier this year, Rick Singer received his prison sentence for orchestrating the entire scheme.
