It was a brave move for Felicity Huffman when she decided to come clean in her part of the College Admissions Scandal, and it just might play a big part on how much jail time she will serve when she faces the judge in Boston on May 13.
The Desperate Housewives star was spotted enjoying her freedom as she took a hike around her neighborhood with a friend and husband William H. Macy.
The actress has used exercise as a means to release stress as she has been spotted throughout the college admissions ordeal taking several jogging trips.
Felicity was wearing a red baseball cap, a baby blue long-sleeve shirt, and black mid-rise Capri leggings. She wore her blonde hair in a ponytail and had gold hoop earrings.
Her husband was running behind her wearing a black baseball cap, white long-sleeve shirt, and black running shorts. Although he wasn’t indicted in the fraudulent crime, he has been by Felicity’s side throughout the whole ordeal.
Huffman looked to be deep-in-conversation with a pal as the two walked alongside a wooded area.
The actress made a brave move to publicly admit her involvement in the bribery scandal and has said she feels she betrayed everyone but mostly her daughter who was unaware of the situation.
In the candid statement Felicity released last month she said, “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” she then continued, “My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her.”
Huffman will be facing the judge early on May 13 after the date was moved up from May 21 under the prosecutor’s request. She could possibly be given four to 10 months of jail time for the $15000 payoff but will probably be given much less.
As far as Lori Loughlin is concerned, she and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, have pleaded not guilty giving a $500,000 bribe to get their daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli into USC under the false pretense that they were part of the rowing team.
The actresses have decided to take completely different paths to deal with their legal woes and we will soon find out who took the smarter road.
