Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty Monday to rigging her older daughter's SAT score in a deal for prosecutors to recommend a four-month prison sentence. She will also pay a $20,000 fine.

The judge will wait to sentence Huffman until she gets a PSR (pre-sentence report).

The judge will make the final sentencing decision.

After Huffman agreed to plead guilty, Netflix officials said a film starring her, "Otherhood", would not be released as planned in April and a new date would be determined.

Sloane and Huffman join three other parents who have pleaded guilty so far in the scheme. Thirty-three parents have been charged in the wide-ranging case. "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", the actress said in an email last month.

"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community", she said.

She added: "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty". She emailed Singer: "Hurray!"

Sound OFF on Huffman Macy's guilty plea, Loughlin's decision to fight the feds, and so much more, all in the comments (below)... Prosecutors allege Singer was paying an administrator at the school, Igor Dvorskiy, thousands of dollars to turn a blind eye to the cheating.

The Emmy-award winning actress was accused of paying $15,000 to have a proctor correct the answers on daughter's SAT exam. Once she was done, Riddell, whose day job was leading college entrance exam preparation at IMG Academy in Florida, corrected her answers.

Huffman's daughter received an SAT score of 1420 out of a possible 1600 - an improvement of approximately 400 points over her Preliminary SAT exam, taken without Singer's help, one year earlier.

When will Red Dead Redemption 2 release on PC? New details emerge
The first hint of a PC version was a profile for a programmer at Rockstar Leeds in 2016. Much like Grand Theft Auto V , the wait for the PC version was extensive.

Court documents said Huffman had paid the money disguised as a charitable donation .

The college admissions scheme was led by William "Rick" Singer, who pleaded guilty to four charges including racketeering conspiracy March 12. He is scheduled to be sentenced September 19.

She walked into court with her brother, Moore, by her side, though there was no sign of husband William H. Macy, who is apparently not there - at least not in public view. The couple also considered using Singer's services for their younger daughter, but ultimately opted not to, according to a criminal complaint. They have not said why.

A California businessman has pleaded guilty to paying $250,000 in bribes to get his son into the University of Southern California as a fake water polo recruit.

Felicity Huffman arrives at federal court May 13, 2019, in Boston. "They have no business or legal right considering all the student privacy issues to be calling and challenging/question [my son]'s application!"
