Felicity Huffman and others plead guilty in US college admissions scandal

Actress Felicity Huffman and 13 other people have agreed to plead guilty to participating in what prosecutors call the largest college admissions scam in US history. Prosecutors, as part of a plea deal, agreed to recommend a prison term at the ’low end’ of the four to 10 months Huffman faces under federal sentencing guidelines. She also agreed to pay a $20,000 fine and restitution.

Did she plead guilty on the condition she's tried in Chicago?

I suppose I should care about this, but frankly I don’t. College is a scam and if you are actually smart, a degree or lack of one will not hinder you at all. These kids may have ended up with a degree from a high profile college, but that doesn’t mean they will be able to keep and hold a job. Unless they work for their parents, but nepotism is a whole other issue.

Time for Ms Huffman to get her slap on the hand. Everyone else gets life in prison!

Okay... NOW PAY THE FUCK UP! Good. They expelled their kid rightfully so those spots are reserved for those who put in the work and the effort! Not the cash!
