The Oscar-nominated Transamerica actress, who is the mother of daughters Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 17, with husband William H. Macy, 69, has admitted shaking off $ 15,000 for a proctor to get wrong answers to the SAT & # 39 ; s from Sofia.
The Desperate Housewives star led the payment through a recording officer William Singer through his non-profit Key Worldwide Foundation; Prosecutors said the aforementioned foundation was established as a front to accept payouts.
When she was admitted to court, Huffman acknowledged that the scam changed the location where Sofia Grace took her test because she used a neuropsychologist to write a note to support the change.
She told the judge that the location change had been made without the fraud in mind, and that neither the neuropsychologist nor her daughter were aware of her machinations.
