Actress Felicity Huffman and a dozen other wealthy parents agreed to plead guilty in a college admissions cheating scam involving some of the nation’s top universities. In March, prosecutors charged Huffman and other parents in a scheme to rig standardized test scores and bribe coaches at prestigious schools, including Yale and Georgetown universities. Huffman, 56, will plead guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and other crimes, punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The plea agreement indicates prosecutors will seek a sentence of four to 10 months. Actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were charged in the scandal but were not among those who agreed to plead guilty.
