Because she apparently only has one good black blazer to her name, Felicity Huffman made the decision to avoid a trial and, as expected, pleaded guilty for her role in Operation Varsity Blues this morning in Boston. According to the Associated Press, Felicity arrived in court escorted by her brother Moore Huffman Jr., instead of her husband William H. Macy (who was not charged with any crime other than impersonating an old west sheriff), which is a shame because you can never have enough clowns at a 3-ring circus, which is exactly what this scandal has become.
Felicity entered a plea of guilty to “a single count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud”, according to the New York Times. In Felicity’s case, the mail fraud charges are not for trying to reuse postage stamps by steaming used ones off of envelopes and putting them on a new ones with a glue stick (want some free legal advice? It doesn’t work. They just send it back to you but you don’t get picked up by the feds. ALLEGEDLY!). No, these charges are for using up her entire blazer budget by paying $15,000 in bribes to boost her daughter’s SAT scores.

Prosecutors have asked for actual prison time for Felicity. I wonder if that means she won’t be able to audition for the role of “Herself” in the eventual American Crime reboot. But because she’s been such a good girl (unlike fellow OVB parents Lori Loughlin and Mossimo) by admitting her crimes and apologizing, it seems likely she’ll be sentenced to serve at the “low end”, if she has to serve any time all.
#UPDATE: Prosecutors are recommending Felicity Huffman receive a prison sentence of 4 months, pay a fine of $20,000 & have 12 months of supervised release. Huffman confirms she read the plea agreement and understands the recommendations. #CollegeAdmissionsScandal #7News

If she does end up serving time, William better come correct and keep her commissary books flush and the houseplants watered. You saw how Lucious Lyon did Cookie when she took the fall for their collective crimes on Empire. She came out the other end a bad bitch with a chip on her shoulder. Although, come to think of it, I would love to see Felicity come out of the clink sporting several new face tattoos and an axe to grind. Or maybe she’ll use a wood chipper.
