Felicity Huffman & # 39; s daughter Sofia & # 39; wants to go to college & # 39; and still has to do a SAT test, so she is apparently busy studying hard
The Executive Board's safety policy states that it will prohibit individuals from taking the SAT, & # 39; when we conclude that they have intentionally gained or tried to gain an unfair advantage on a College Board test, or otherwise the integrity of the test threatened & # 39 ;.
A representative of the Executive Board told TMZ that even if Sophia was involved in misconduct, a six-month suspension would apply and that period had already expired.
Another representative claimed that students can generally register for the test without a problem, but there may be exceptions.
Meanwhile, Sophia is said to have two-part jobs and that she has found & # 39; her own apartment & # 39; while she is working on an application to colleges after operation Varsity Blues.
Huffman was also sentenced to a year of controlled release and a $ 30,000 fine after he was found guilty of paying admission consultant Rick Singer $ 15,000 to change her daughter's test.
She broke off in court moments before she was convicted and said: & I have done more damage than I could have ever imagined & # 39; and claimed that her actions & # 39; scared, stupid and so wrong & # 39; goods.
She became the first parent convicted in the university admission scandal that entangled dozens of rich and well-connected mothers and fathers.
A total of 51 people were accused of the settlement, the largest admission case ever prosecuted by the Ministry of Justice.
Prosecutors said parents were planning to manipulate test scores and bribe coaches to get their children to elite schools by getting them labeled as recruited athletes for sports they didn't even play.
Rick Singer, who pleaded guilty, has bribed a proctor to correct the teen's answers.
Felicity Huffman will be in federal prison for 14 days, followed by a year conditional to pay a five-digit sample in exchange for a proctor who forges the standardized fitness test of her daughter to give the teenager a higher score. The family is pictured together in January
Huffman's lawyer Martin Murphy argued that her crimes were less serious than those of her co-defendants and noted that she did not involve her daughter in the scheme
& # 39; I want to apologize to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions & # 39 ;, Huffman had said in an email after a hearing.
& # 39; And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to go to college, and to their parents who make huge sacrifices to support their children. & # 39;
In advocating detention, deputy lawyer Eric Rosen told the judge that prosecutors had no reason to doubt why Huffman had offered her parents and her uncertainties to participate in the scheme.
& # 39; But with all due respect to the defendant, welcome to parenthood, & # 39; said Rosen.
& # 39; Parenting is frightening, tiring and stressful, but that is what every parent goes through.
& # 39; What parenting doesn't do, it doesn't make you a criminal, it doesn't make you misleading, it even makes you want to serve as a positive role model for your children. & # 39;
