    Big deal , even a commoner cheats in schools ,exams etc . It’s not going to kill anyone if her daughter gets a fake high score. Instead of wasting prison space for a light crime ,just charge hefty penalty and use that money for betterment of society.

    She stepped up and took responsibility, unlike Laurie Loflin. Felicity doesn't have additional charges like Laurie, so a light sentence along with a heafty fine would be appropriate. Laurie most likely will get a long sentence, unless the jury consists of a few bleeding hearts that will result in no jail time.

    4 months in prison that's it??! That is ridiculous 😵

  • Crank I. T. C. Paranormal Special ghost person

    Just because the prosecutor recommendation is 4 months doesn't mean that is what they can give her ,it 4 to 10,the judge can impose 10 months,useally when it's cooperation then they will take that,but Lori laughn isn't going to be able to to have any wiggle room for leantlessly,they said money got them into this so money isn't going to be the punishment. For this it's because it's and $$ amount and $$$ involved.laughn is so screwed!!

  • Crank I. T. C. Paranormal Special ghost person

    Well her story is understand able ,she admitted it owned it ,and is facing it,it's not much more you can expect from her,that had to be hard to do,she's not playing a game with bullshit excuses and buying rich lawery s and trying to buy her way out unlike Lori laughn is doing, Huffman has an Oscar award were does Lori laughn feel she more famous? Again Lori worrying about imagine,geazz that's pathetic!! Seriously she's terrible, but that's my opinion and it's worst now.

    I’m glad she’s taking responsibility and is pleading guilty. Lori L on the other hand is a fool and is being very arrogant and I think they’ll make an example out of her!

      I was thinking that,she said it seemed that they wasn't trying to make an example of Huffman apparently Lori was watching the out come, i!.m thinking , they are saving the example for them , Huffman did what you surposly should do,and what they want, cooperation , I can't believe that Lorie an husband doesn't get this, they are in for an big surprise,geaz they aren't doing anything but stalling and costing the costs money for an trial.

    She made a mistake and she is owning it. Not the first person to do so. People are wanting to see her spend years in jail. Meanwhile gang bangers and girlfriend beaters are out making millions selling music. She did what a lot of rich people do. She just got caught.

    How dare her play the special needs card. Do you know how many parents of special needs children are fighting to further their child’s education!!! Come on. Until I heard her reasoning, due to her daughter having neurological problems, I was hoping for the best for her. Dang it I’m upset.

    She MIGHT get 4 months in jail (which means less will be served if jail time is a punishment at all) for a very serious crime. A young black male gets 12 years in prison for kissing a woman. Yet many still expect all to proudly respect the national anthem or gladly recite the pledge of allegiance in school. Definitely the AmeriKKKan way.

    Five Atlanta teachers, all middle class and Black, each received 5 YEARS in prison for changing grades on a standadized test. How in the world will Huffman only serve 4 months for this? Did the university kick her lazy, no ambition, UNQUALIFIED adult daughter out of school? The crime is in the slap on the wrist that this woman is getting. I'd like to see her daughter's real high school transcript.

    Does the daughter still get to go to that college? Sad to say she didn’t get in with the right score, so shouldn’t she have to take the test again to stay in? Or get kicked out because she never should have gotten in in the first place? Knowing about this or not doesn’t mean she earned her place there at all.

    Aw well every student on those campuses take part in the massive advantages brought by the rich kids parents. You think there's a good college in this country that isn't funded by the rich kids parents? So while it's bs that they buy their kids spot that money technically goes to everyone including the poor students and affirmative action students one way or another.

  • THE TRACKCAR
    THE TRACKCAR 3 months ago

    Here’s what I do not understand. Judges are willing to hammer families who paid the way for their children to attend a good college, but when a teenager Ethan Couch aka the “Affluenza Teen” who receives a slap on the wrist for killing four human beings in a drunk driving incident, well, where is justice then to be found? Great job with the justice system! Judges of America, I would be lying through my teeth if I said that you truly are making a difference and serving justice in its entirety in cases such as with Ethan Couch. However if you must hammer families who have used their wealth to provide opportunities for their children then, I’d hope that every wealthy family be looked into for crimes committed that may have otherwise gone undetected due to law enforcement and authorities turning the other cheek. Some, but not all judges also commit crimes and therefore too need to be investigated for unethical and immoral actions.
