In return, the government is recommending that she receive a punishment near the lower-end of the sentencing guidelines.

Singer pleaded guilty in March to racketeering, money laundering; conspiracy to defraud the USA, and obstruction of justice.

Huffman officially pled guilty on Monday, but she's been careful to take ownership of her blame and cooperate from the start.

Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to a felony nearly exactly a month after Lori Loughlin pled not guilty for her involvement in the same scandal: Operation Varsity Blues, which has been dominating the news for months.

Huffman, 56, paid $15,000 to admissions consultant William "Rick" Singer and his nonprofit organization, Key Worldwide Foundation ("KWF"), which prosecutors said was actually a front for accepting bribes. Nor was Huffman's husband and Sophia's father, William H. Macy, despite the fact he had correspondence with Singer. A further 17, including actress Lori Loughlin, have pleaded not guilty.

In April, Huffman issued a statement apologizing for her actions.

Thirteen other parents have also agreed to plead guilty. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Rosen recommended four months in prison, a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release. The couple also considered using Singer's services for their younger daughter, but ultimately opted not to, according to a criminal complaint.

Sloane's sentencing is scheduled or September 10.

The star had previously released a statement taking responsibility for her actions and admitting guilt while showing at least some level of remorse, so it's possible a judge may acknowledge that as appropriately remorseful and lighten her sentence, especially after her guilty plea today. They have not said why.

Also scheduled to plead guilty Monday is Los Angeles businessman Devin Sloane, who authorities say paid $250,000 to get his son into USC as a fake water polo recruit.

Felicity Huffman arrives at federal court May 13, 2019, in Boston. In truth, Sloane's son did not play water polo and his high school did not field a team, prosecutors say. "They have no business or legal right considering all the student privacy issues to be calling and challenging/question [my son]'s application!"

"He is small but he has a long torso but short strong legs plus he is fast which helps him win the draws to start play after goals are scored", she wrote in an email, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation affidavit.

Heinel has been indicted on a racketeering conspiracy charge; she has pleaded not guilty.
