Felicity Huffman will be sentenced in the college admissions scandal tomorrow (Friday). The prosecutors want to see her spend at least a month in jail, but her defense team is trying to convince the judge to let her off. They're pointing to a Probation Department report that suggests NO jail time, because there was no victim . . . nobody suffered any loss due to her actions. And part of her argument is that her kid didn't even end up going to college. Her team also argues that the prosecution is drawing unfair comparisons between Felicity and the other defendants in the case. Felicity only pled guilty to conspiracy charges for paying $15K to have her daughter's SAT score fabricated. I have to say I originally really appreciated the fact that Felicity immediately took responsibility for her actions and said she was guilty. But I'm a little disheartened that now she's trying to say no one was hurt so no jail time is necessary. No one wants to go to jail, but if you or I had done this, we would be going. And it's not a victimless crime. She was trying to take a spot away from someone else who rightfully deserved it. What do you think? Should Felicity have to go to jail, or is probation enough? Let me know on the TRY Facebook page.
