此前轰动一时的美国大规模入学舞弊案件(戳这里回顾),迎来了最新消息!

美国当地时间9月13日(上周五),《绝望主妇》中的女演员Felicity Huffman由于在大学入学舞弊案中的行为被判入狱14天!

Actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced last Friday to 14 days in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.



除此之外,美国地区法官Indira Talwani还判处Huffman3万美元罚款,为期一年的监督释放,以及250小时的社区服务,Huffman成为案件中第一位结案的家长。与女演员Lori Loughlin一样,Huffman也是这一事件最“著名”的人员。

Along with prison time, U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani sentenced Huffman to a $30,000 fine, supervised release for one year and 250 hours of community service in the scandal's first sentencing of a parent. Huffman, along with actress Lori Loughlin, is also one of the case's most famous.

据悉,检方曾寻求将Huffman的刑期定为一个月,此前Huffman已经承认花了15000美元为自己的大女儿Sophia购买SAT考试(美国高考)的正确答案。

Prosecutors sought one month of prison for the former "Desperate Housewives" actress, who has admitted to paying $15,000 to have someone correct answers on the SAT exam for her older daughter, Sophia.

上周五的法庭上,Huffman为自己在案件中的行为道歉:“我为自己的所作所为承担全部责任,并为我的罪行道歉。任何惩罚我都接受。”她须在10月25日到监狱报到。

In court last Friday, Huffman apologized for her role in the scandal, saying, "I take full responsibility of my actions and making amends with my crime. I will deserve whatever punishment you give me." She must report to prison on Oct. 25.


 
据CNN此前报道,今年3月,美国曝光大规模入学舞弊案件,可能成为美国历史上最大名校招生丑闻。这一事件提醒众人,富人家庭可以通过舞弊得到更大的特权。而有人坚信,这还只是冰山一角。

The massive college admissions scam, thought to be the biggest ever prosecuted in the United States, is a harsh reminder that wealthy families can cheat their way to even greater privilege. And some say this scandal is just the tip of the iceberg.

CNN今年3月的报道:

联邦检察官:有钱父母,演员,教练都在大规模入学舞弊丑闻中被起诉


CNN报道指出,这些人或在招生标准考试上作弊,或行贿大学教练、校方工作人员,以便让学生以体育特长生身份入学——哪怕这些学生从未从事过该运动项目。而卷入招生丑闻的,还都是美国的顶尖学府,包括耶鲁大学(Yale University)、斯坦福大学(Stanford University)、乔治城大学(Georgetown University)、加利福尼亚大学洛杉矶分校(UCLA)和南加利福尼亚大学(University of Southern California)等学校。



检方表示,这些家长通过一家名为The Key的大学入学咨询业务公司来运作此事。该公司CEO威廉•里克•辛格面对四项指控,并已认罪。

It was all orchestrated by William Rick Singer, CEO of a college admissions prep company called The Key. Singer pleaded guilty to four charges and admitted that everything a prosecutor accused him of "is true."



本案13日开庭前,Huffman在递交给法官的信件中表示,如果不加入辛格的作弊计划,她就担心自己成为了一位“坏母亲”,并表示,不希望自己有学习障碍的女儿因为数学成绩不佳而失去入学机会。

Huffman, in a letter to the judge submitted before the hearing, said she feared she would be a "bad mother" if she didn't take part in Singer's cheating scheme. She said she didn't want her daughter, who has learning disabilities, to not get admitted to college because of a low math score.

不过,法官则表示:想当一个好母亲,不能成为这件事(舞弊案)的借口。

"Trying to be a good mother doesn’t excuse this," the judge said.



在当天宣判后给媒体的声明中,Huffman表示她“毫无保留的接受法庭今日的判决。”

Huffman said that she accepts the "court's decision today without reservation" in a statement released to the media.

“我违反了法律,我承认,我服罪。我的所作所为没有借口,也没有可辩解的。我向我的女儿、丈夫、我的家人以及教育界道歉。尤其是,我要向那些刻苦学习进入大学的学生、以及为了支持子女而付出巨大牺牲的家长们道歉。”

"I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. " Huffman said in the statement. "I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children."

“我承诺,在未来的日子里,我将努力去过诚实的生活,为女儿和家庭树立更好的榜样,在需要我的地方贡献时间和精力。我希望我的家庭、朋友和社区可以原谅我的行为。”

"I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed," Huffman said. "My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions."



此外,Huffman的丈夫,曾出演过美剧《无耻之徒》的演员William H. Macy则没有在案件中受到指控。因为目前尚不清楚他对于妻子的行为是否知情。

Felicity Huffman's husband William H. Macy, the "Shameless" star, has not been charged in connection with the college cheating scandal because it's unclear if he was aware of his wife's alleged activities.
