Monday, actress Felicity Huffman plead guilty to the college admissions scandal. 

She released a statement stating she is taking full responsibility for her actions and her daughter knew absolutely nothing about this situation. 

12 other parents also pleaded guilty in cases involving everything from rigging standardized test scores to bribing coaches.

Although the one name that was not on the list of defendants who agreed to enter guilty pleas was actress Lori Loughlin. According to a former prosecutor, "the deal for people who pled out today – they got the best deal possible. Again, even though there was the seven to nine months of possible prison time, the deal is in that zero to six range – which is the lowest you're going to get."

According to TMZ as of Tuesday afternoon, Loughlin and her husband have now been indicted for an additional charge of money laundering. This charge alone carries a maximum of 20 years in prison. Prosecutors recommend to the judge a minimum of 4 years and 9 months and up to 5 years and 11 months for Lori and her husband.
