Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among those who showed up yesterday in a Boston courtroom to answer to charges in conjunction with that now-infamous college admissions scheme. To review, the ladies who were recorded on wiretapped calls discussing the scheme with ringleader William Rick Singer– are accused of paying bribes to help get their kids into elite schools: Huffman, $15-grand....Loughlin, $500k.
Felicity came with her brother, Moore Huffman Jr. Not seen? Her husband,William H. Macy, who hasn’t ben charged in the scheme (the two have reportedly hit a rocky patch since her arrest). Meanwhile, Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli– who were both charged – came together.
The judge didn’t keep either actress long. In Felicity’s case, he asked her if she understood the severity of the charges. She did, and since she’d already surrendered her passport, she was done. Lori reportedly came in greeting the prosecuting team with smiles and handshakes. After she and Mossimo surrendered their passports, they, too, were done for the day. If convicted of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud, the women each face a maximum of five-years in prison.
