Felicity Huffman to plead guilty in college admissions scandal

The Desperate Housewives star said she had "betrayed" her daughter and was "ashamed" of the pain she had caused.

Ms Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 (£11,500) to have her daughter's exam questions covertly corrected in 2017.

The 56-year-old is one of 14 people set to plead guilty among the 50 charged, who include college athletic coaches.

In a statement, she said: "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.
