Miss Lori was HUGE offender, she spent $500,000 more or less to directly bribe a place for her offspring, no real comparison except that both took advantage by way of wealth and position.

And she and hubby are fighting the charges. Felicity played that part much smarter.

She is in serious trouble.

Seems steep to me for a 1st offense for someone who has led a crime free life in the past.  Should have fined her the cost of tuition, instead.  Also, why wasn't her dh arrested?

Historically, many kids in the US have gotten in on by the jobs their parents had, especially in politics and sports.  Ie, JFK, GWB, John McCain.

I wondered that too. People buy whole buildings and their kids get accepted.  William Macy didn’t leave a paper trail. If they had included him, both would have gotten off on lack of evidence.  They had hard evidence on her so they let him go.

She is not a criminal like drunken drivers or illegal drug users.  Her fine should have been s lot more and jail 0 with community service.

Be interesting to see what happens to the guy from Empire.  I consider him a real criminal with all the expenses used by the cops.

Yes, he is but he also has a doubly protected status. I’m guessing nothing more will happen to him but possible the state’s attorney will face censure.  I doubt anyone will face charges.

Felicity Huffman is being used as a deterrent, nothing more.

Yes, it's all who one  knows.  Huffman didn't mingle with the right people.  Too bad she didn't shove her kids into real sports and hobbies to get them in a good school?

Her girls have learning disabilities.  If those weren’t treated right, it wouldn’t matter, they would have significant difficulty in school.  It’s too bad she didn’t focus on that when they were younger.  They could have had accommodations and bypassed all the cheating nonsense.
