The ongoing “College Admissions Scandal” is taking out a few of Hollywood’s established names. Most notably, Full House’s Lori Loughlin is being charged with money laundering after allegedly paying $500,000 to get her daughters into USC. If convicted, Loughlin faces up to twenty years in prison. Fortunately, the stakes aren’t as high for everyone involved. Actress Felicity Huffman plead guilty in the ongoing legal matter. Reports suggest that she will face up to four months in prison for allegedly paying $15,000 to improve her child’s SAT scores illegally.
Meanwhile, Huffman is hoping to continue her career in Hollywood once she serves her debt to society. However, she has a long way to go. Prior to this ongoing legal matter, Huffman was set to release a new film on Netflix called Otherhood. The film was set to star Huffman and Angela Bassett and be released on April 26th. Given the circumstances, the film has been pushed back. Netflix has yet comment on the matter.
In contrast, Huffman will appear in a new Netflix series that will be released in May. Huffman is set to appear in Ava DuVernay’s When They See Us, which will be released on May 31st. The series will chronicle the tragic Central Park Five case. Huffman will play the role of Linda Fairstein, who led the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney’s office in Manhattan at the time of the case.
Huffman has yet to comment on the matter.
