  • Felicity Huffman Arrested in College Admission Cheating Scandal

    Felicity Huffman has been taken into custody.

    The 56-year-old Desperate Housewives star, who was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud in an alleged college admissions cheating scam on Tuesday (March 12), was reportedly arrested and taken into custody.
    Felicity is part of a group of people, including Fuller House star Lori Loughlin, indicted as part of the nationwide scheme according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts.
    “Dozens of individuals involved in a nationwide conspiracy that facilitated cheating on college entrance exams and the admission of students to elite universities as purported athletic recruits were arrested by federal agents in multiple states and charged in documents unsealed on March 12, 2019, in federal court in Boston,” reads the statement.
    She is charged with allegedly giving $15,000 “to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her oldest daughter.”

      Meh, it’s not the worst crime. Sounds like a plot lifted straight outta Desperate Housewives to me.

          I mean, that’s a bit excessive. She’s not a murderer.

              I mean in all seriousness, what’s going to be the end result here? A fine and any degrees torn up I suppose. I don’t really get why it’s so serious - the US college system is rigged anyway - anyone with money can buy their way onto a course and basically buy a degree one way or another. You just buy the college another library or something.

                  The FBI has always been extra af. Imagine if she were black.

                    Well, she'd be dead.

                    So disappointed with Felicity.

                    How come you need to cheat to access something that was basically build for you...

                    White mediocrity at its best.

                      I'm currently re-watching season 1 of DH and just yesterday I watched the episode where she asks Bree to put in a good word for the twins so that they get enrolled into a prestigious private school!

                        Maybe that's where Huffman got the idea from.

                            I find all this quite bizarre. I'm not shocked at rich people buying a place for their kids in better colleges because it happens here a lot too, but the media is reporting it as it's some murder case or drug cartel being smashed. LOL.

                              Surprised Felicity would do something like this considering she played a Headmaster in American Crime who was acting unethically to protect privileged students. She should know better.

                              Scream at Felicity paying $15,000 to increase her daughters SAT score by 400 points. If this isn't an example of the problem with the US college system has with privilege i don't know what is.

                              I feel bad for the hardworking young people from lower income families that miss out on places in colleges due to people like this who abuse their power.

                                I'm surprised Felicity is the focal point of many stories when Lori Loughlin, tho less popular, paid up to $400k.

                                  A couple of my American friends have heard of people who've done this too, seems to be a genuine issue - more with the system that needs to be changed, Huffman just took advantage of it (wrongly so).

                                    It’s a really gross story. White and wealthy privilege strikes again.

                                      Thinking that only white and rich people buy place for their kids somewhere is completely crazy. It's a rich people "thing". I'm pretty sure there are POC who do the same thing.

                                        Not saying what Lynette Scavo did was correct, but for some reason, it's bothering me that she and Lori are seeming to take the heat for this alone. Like fifty people were involved. I'd like to hear about the coahes who facilitated this, or know who some of these other parents are. Focusing on the actresses makes it seem like this is an anomaly.

                                            Yeah why is none of the hate being directed at the people who recieved this bribes. Don't get me wrong. What they did is horrible. But for them to basically take all the heat just because they are celebs is ridiculous

                                                Why is this even a case? Everyone knows that colleges do stuff like this, even the opposite...unis like Harvard will accept students that come from big donors or famous alumni...🙄 two wrongs don’t make a right but let’s be honest here..
