Felicity Huffman Appears in Court After College Admission Scam Arrest
Felicity Huffman was released on a $250,00 bond, just hours after she was arrested for her alleged involvement in a nationwide college admissions scheme.
The Desperate Housewives star appeared in federal court as her husband, William H. Macy, attended. Earlier on Tuesday, she was arrested by Federal Bureau of Investigation agents at her Los Angeles home.
According to Us Weekly, she was soft spoken when giving answers to the judge, who ordered her to avoid contact with anyone involved with the case, at which point the prosecutor said that it could be complicated since William H. Macy may be a part of the case, adding, “He is certainly a subject of the investigation.”
Reportedly, the prosecutor added that they have “detailed communication” recorded between the actress and the leader of the scheme, including evidence of bribery, which “speaks to the dishonesty” of Felicity.
Additionally, the actress was ordered to surrender her passport and is not allowed to leave the continental U.S.
Her next appearance is set for March 29 at the federal court in Boston.
