Felicity Huffman Could Get At Least 4 Months In Prison, While Lori Loughlin Faces A Minimum Of 2 Years
It’s time to start talking prison lengths when it comes to Operation Varsity Blues. The delicious recompense us poor people have been waiting for is finally on the horizon and punishment looms over all those richie riches who bought their kids’ ways into colleges they weren’t smart enough to get into, but they’re rich so they “deserved” it. Well now they deserve the sentences (no quotations). Felicity Huffman is biting the bullet, along with other rich parents involved in the scheme, and she pled guilty to the charges. Well, Us Weekly says that it looks like prosecutors are asking for Lynette Scavo to move from Wisteria Lane to Century Regional Detention Facility for four months.
A criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles named Lou Shapiro spoke to Us and gave them all the legal 411 on what Felicity is about to go through. He said that while Felicity has pled guilty and is awaiting sentencing, which prosecutors will argue should be 4 to 10 months in prison, there is likely (AKA: 100% guaranteed) a chance that her lawyer will ask for no prison time:
“In light of the fact that the prosecutors are requesting a relatively low amount of incarceration, it puts Huffman’s defense team in striking distance of a no-prison outcome.”
Show of hands: who thinks this wealthy white woman will serve jail time? She is owning up to her “mistake” (the mistake was getting ratted on by the mastermind) and is promptly turning over her wrist for society to slap her on it. We will watch her cry in court at her plea hearing–which has yet to be announced, but stay tuned for that hot date–and she is going to go home to her expensive house that same night.
Meanwhile over in Lori Loughlin‘s house–shit is on a different level.
Society may love to forgive apologetic rich people we loved on TV shows, but we also adore watching self-righteous, indignant rich people go down in flames. Lori seems to be teetering towards the latter. Sources connected to the case tell TMZ that the parents in the scheme have all been offered plea deals but with prison time attached. Some, like Felicity, could argue for none because the minimum is low. Lori, however is not that lucky.
TMZ is reporting that prosecutors are much less thrilled with Aunt Becky than Lynette. She was out here signing autographs when she was on her way to court, and not giving a damn about the seriousness she’s in. Prosecutors apparently want her and her husband Mossimo to serve at least two years if they agree to a plea deal.
Lori and Mossimo paid $500,000 in this scheme whereas Felicity paid a measly $15,000. Because Lori and Mossimo coughed up so much money for their daughters who can’t row, their minimum prison recommendation is two or two and a half years.
Felicity jumped on the plea because she knows it’s the best way to avoid prison time. Lori and Mossimo have not copped a plea yet because neither one of these privileged hoes would last two hours in prison let alone years. But they better think quick, because TMZ’s sources also say that the prosecutors have laid out an ultimatum: take the plea fast or go to a Federal Grand Jury and add charges which include money laundering and will “significantly” raise the prison minimum.
And hey, at least Olivia Jade knows what to do with all that makeup she probably has left over from her ruined partnership deals: she can send it to her mom in prison. Just cause you’re in jail don’t mean you can’t look like a fabulous celebrity. Get that wrist ready to sign some more autographs for cellblock C, Aunt Becks!
