Actress Felicity Huffman has released a statement about her involvement in the college entrance exam cheating scheme. Huffman was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud for paying $15,000 for allowing her daughter an unlimited amount of time to take her SAT.

In Huffman’s statement, she wrote, “I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office.

“I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.

According to the Department of Justice, 14 other parents are also expected to enter a plea of guilty in the scandal.

Huffman went on to apologize to her family as well as others that work hard to get themselves into college. She said, “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.

"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.”

Huffman as well as fellow actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli , were some of the 50 individuals charged in the college entrance exam scandal.
