Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty in the college admissions cheating scam that has ensnared wealthy parents, Fox News has learned.
On Monday, the 56-year-old actress announced her decision explaining that she accepts “full responsibility” for her actions.
“I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office,” the “Desperate Housewives” alum said in a statement obtained by Fox News.
“I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” the statement continued. “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.
“My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.”
