Felicity Huffman's Daughter To Re-Take Her SAT Exam
Following Felicity Huffman's involvement in the college admissions scandal, the actor's daughter Sophia will reportedly re-sit her SATs.
After pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and honest services fraud for paying $15,000 to have her daughter's SAT scores increased, Felicity Huffman was sentenced to two weeks in jail and a $30,000 fine for her part in the scandal.
Now, according to TMZ, the star's 19-year-old daughter Sophia Macy is wanting to attend college, meaning she will once again have to sit her SAT exams.
Following the scandal -- with her mother bribing Rick Singer with $15,000 to coerce an exam proctor to allow extra time and correct wrong answers -- Sophia may still have a difficult time finding a school that will accept her, given that the College Board security policy states:
"College Board will prohibit individuals from taking the SAT... when we conclude they have deliberately gained or attempted to gain or share an unfair advantage on any College Board test, or otherwise threatened the integrity of the test."
Felicity Huffman was one of several to be charged following Operation Varsity Blues, with fellow actress Lori Loughlin also charged, though she had pled not guilty to all charges.
During Huffman's sentencing, she reportedly told the judge, “I take full responsibility for my actions, will deserve whatever punishment you give me.”
She also apologised to "students, parents, colleges, and universities who’ve been impacted by my actions,” as well to “my daughters Sophia, and Georgia, and I am sorry to my husband Will. I have betrayed them.”
She also revealed in court that the worst part was Sophia discovering she had bribed her way into college, saying, "[Sophia] said to me, 'I don't know who you are anymore, Mum," she said, adding, "Why didn't you believe in me? Why didn't you think I could do it on my own?"
Lori Loughlin is yet to be sentenced for her part in the scandal.
