14 Plead Guilty in College Admissions Scandal

Actress Felicity Huffman, along with twelve other participating parents and one coach, has plead guilty to using fraud and bribery in the multi-million dollar college admissions scandal that shook the country. The affluent group entered their plea Monday in a Boston federal court.

Despite public appeals for prison time, it appears the justice system is going to take it easy on former Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman. The actress is facing nearly 20 years for her part in the admissions scandal where she paid $15,000 for SAT testing conditions that facilitated cheating. Yet her guilty plea may have earned her brownie points with federal prosecutors.

According to CNN, Felicity will not face further charges and the prosecution is recommending incarceration at the “low end” of the sentencing range along with other palatable conditions. While there is no clear cut amount of time mention, speculators say Felicity could face as little as 12 to 18 months behind bars, 12 months of supervised release, and a $20,000 fine. Lori Loughlin, on the other hand, is facing a two-year minimum should she take the plea.

While her name was not among the list of other perpetrators to plead guilty, Lori “Aunt Becky” Loughlin and her spouse Mossimo Giannulli have been offered an ultimatum — take the deal or do the time. According to TMZ, the plea deal offered to Loughlin and Giannulli has a higher sentence minimum due to the severity of their crime. Having paid $500,000 for an athletic bribe to a crew coach at USC, the couple is receiving harsher punishment compared to those who just cheated on the Scholastic Aptitude Test. While there’s no indication that Lori or her spouse have taken the deal, time is running out. The duo have a limited time before they face further charges which could raise their prison time.

Prince William Meghan Markle Catherine Middleton Prince Harry

After months of using Meghan Markle as the perfect scapegoat for tension between the royals, reports of Prince William’s infidelity have surfaced. According to multiple news outlets, the expected king has allegedly cheated with Catherine Middleton’s best friend, Rose Hanbury.

Surely his father’s son, Prince William has brought shame upon the royal family for repeating the lecherous mistake of an extramarital affair. But his indiscretions carry a twist. Instead of carrying the shame as Prince Charles did, William shifted blame onto Meghan, concocting the many negative stories that plagued media outlets himself. With this knowledge, it is now apparent why there is such distance between the sons of Princess Diana.

The marriage of Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has allegedly been on the rocks for quite some time. But things have recently come to a head in recent months as the couple dissolved their friendship with Rose Hanbury and her husband, David Rocksavage — aka the Marquess and Marchioness of Cholmondeley. pronounced “Chumley”.

When rumors of an affair between William and Rose began circulating, Catherine immediately confronted him as the tryst took place during her third pregnancy. To quell the oncoming storm , Prince William contacted his lawyer, urging him to suppress any information that could hit U.K outlets and threatening offensive publications with legal action. In addition, media outlets that cover the royals’ goings-on began to heavily deride Meghan Markle, fueling rumors she was difficult or causing Kate’s disappointment. While news of his affair has been spreading for several weeks, it’s validity remained questioned until April 24th. Catherine Middleton returned to London last night with only her 3 children and the royal family is refusing to comment on the matter.

Bun B

When Bernard “Bun B” Freeman said “I got 20/10 vision and my trigger finger steady,” DeMonte Jackson was not listening! The iconic Houston rapper shot the armed intruder who entered his home Tuesday night.

According to the police report, DeMonte Jackson’s attempted robbery began when he approached Bun B’s southwest Houston home and rang the doorbell. Anticipating a delivery from Amazon, Bun B’s wife, Queenie, opened the door without looking to see who was on the other side and found herself staring down the barrel of a gun. Wearing a ski mask and pointing the weapon at Queenie, Jackson forced entry into the home while shouting demands.

Hearing the disturbance, Bun B quickly armed himself and made his way downstairs. Upon seeing the intruder holding his wife hostage, Bun B tried negotiating with Jackson. Fearful for her safety, he told the intruder to take their vehicle from the garage. With Queenie out of harm’s way, Bun B led Jackson to the car, where he confronted him. Exchanging gunfire in the garage, Bun B shot the intruder in the shoulder. However, Jackson escaped. Running away from the property, he laid low before seeking care at a hospital where he would later be apprehended.

DeMonte Jackson was charged with one count of burglary and two counts of aggravated robbery. Neither Queenie or Bun B sustained physical injuries.
