U.S. Actress Pleads Guilty in College Admissions Scandal

American actress Felicity Huffman has agreed to plead guilty in a college admissions cheating case, thus admitting to paying $15,000 to a testing center in order to manipulate her daughter's SATs score.

Desperate Housewives star said that she takes responsibility for what she did and that she "will accept the consequences that stem from those actions".

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her,” Huffman said in a statement.

"This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life,” she added.

"My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty,” she noted.

Huffman is among 50 people charged in the admissions scandal.
