Felicity Huffman entered her guilty plea solo on Monday as her husband William H. Macy missing from the court hearing. Macy, who has been at the side of Huffman since the college cheating scandal broke, has not been charged in the case.

A tearful Huffman pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud with prosecutors recommending a sentence of four months in prison. This is in addition to a fine of $20,000 and 12 months of supervised release. Sentencing is slated for Sept. 13.

Huffman was accompanied by her brother Moore Huffman, Jr. in court on Monday. Macy, who was absent from the proceedings has no involvement in the case at this time, however, he allegedly was aware of the cheating scheme and may have participated in some of the illegal dealings as was described in the court complaint, The New York Times reported.

It has been speculated that there may not have been as much evidence to Macy’s involvement in the scheme or that he may have provided information about others involved in the scandal, but most likely not about his wife, according to the news outlet.

There is also the possibility that Macy could be charged in the future related to the case as a spokeswoman for the United States attorney for the district of Massachusetts told The New York Times that the investigation was continuing.

There have been rumors that Huffman and Macy’s marriage is struggling and divorce is being thrown around, but as previously reported, the “Shameless” actor has been spotted out with his wife since her public apology and admission of guilt. He was also in attendance at her initial court hearings.

Huffman allegedly paid a proctor $15,000 for her daughter to have an unlimited amount of time to take her SAT test. In court, Huffman claimed her daughter had a neurological disorder that required her to need more time to take tests.

Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli have also been charged in the college cheating scandal. They have chosen to fight the charges against them and have pleaded not guilty. The couple paid $500,000 to get their daughters into the University of California by posing as crew team recruits, despite their daughters not playing the sport.
