Felicity Huffman,56, wrote in the statement, obtained by PEOPLE, reads:
I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office. 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.
I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.
Huffman then emphasized her plan to cheat on the SATs for her daughter was concocted without her daughter’s knowledge.
My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.
It is also being said that Huffman and the others are getting a lighter sentence. Felicity’s plea would enable her to serve as little as 4 months in prison along with a hefty fine.
