BOSTON (AP) – Actress Felicity Huffman has made her initial appearance in Boston’s federal court in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal.
Huffman did not speak other than to respond to a series of yes or no questions by the judge during the brief hearing Wednesday. She was not asked to enter a plea.
The “Desperate Housewives” star is accused of paying $15,000 disguised as a charitable donation to rig her daughter’s SAT score.
She was arrested last month along with fellow actress Lori Loughlin, Loughlin’s fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli, and other prominent parents and college coaches.
Neither Huffman nor her lawyers have publicly addressed the allegations. She was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
