Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty In Admissions Scandal, Lori

The college admissions scandal that shook the nation has moved forward now that Felicity Huffman has entered her guilty plea. But former Fuller House star Lori Loughlin is holding out hope that she won’t find herself behind bars.

A source close to Loughlin revealed the actress “doesn’t believe she deserves” jail time. Lori Loughlin, who refused any plea deals, incurred several additional charges unlike Huffman, who immediately owned her part in the conspiracy. To make matters worse, Loughlin’s relationships with her husband and daughter are suffering from the decision to pay $500,000 in bribes for admission to USC.

Olivia Jade, the daughter of Loughlin and fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, has not been on good terms with her parents following the discovery of their deceitful activity. The source, who spoke with ET, says Olivia is defiant and refuses to forgive or speak with her mother because “she’s hurt and feels betrayed.” Jade allegedly told her parents she “wasn’t interested in going to college”, and said this all could have been avoided if they had just listened to her.

While Loughlin is struggling to find the strength to hold herself accountable, Huffman is facing her charges head on. May 13th, Felicity Huffman appeared in court to plead guilty for paying $15,000 to allow extra time for her daughter to take the SAT test and have a proctor correct her answers. Prosecutors are asking that she receives a sentence of a mere four months in jail for the offense along with paying a $20,000 fine.

Appearing before Judge Indira Talwani, Huffman tearfully explained her case and accepted the terms of her plea deal. Under the agreement, Huffman is ineligible to run for public office, owning a firearm and ammo, and cannot appeal any prison decision up to 20 years. Huffman will receive her sentence September 13th.

“We Don’t Feel Safe”: Fort Worth Residents Demand Change Following Atatiana Jefferson’s Murder

“If you were awarded $150,000, would any of that money go to maybe retraining officers how to not pull triggers?” Citizens of Fort Worth, Texas arrived at the first city council meeting following the shooting of Atatiana Jefferson to demand change. The 28-year old Black woman was gunned down in her home by Fort Worth Police Officer Aaron Dean while caring for her 8-year old nephew.

Concerned residents are determined to have their voices heard and demand action from sitting officials. During the first city council meeting to take place since Atatiana’s death, Fort Worth City Hall was filled to capacity with residents looking for answers. Despite City officials conducting typical business before hearing residents speak, their outraged calls to action were not received. Meeting attendees who attempted to discuss their misgivings were escorted out by City Marshals. With fears of weak sentencing stoked by the outcome of Amber Guyger’s trial, protests have ensued in what one official calls a “Black state of emergency.”

Declaring the Dallas/Fort Worth area to be in a “Black state of emergency”, McKinney Councilman La’Shadion Shemwell has asked prospective Black travelers to refrain from visiting. Monday, LaShadion shared that Black and brown lives are in danger by visiting and he “cannot sit idly by” as war continues on Fort Worth’s citizens. Mayor George Fuller called the narrative dangerous. However, he still allowed Shemwell to read his proclamation which calls out the pattern and practice of discriminatory policing.

A block party for three prominent HBCUs ended in gunfire last night resulting in injuries for four female students. Around 10:30 PM, shots rang out near the Clark Atlanta University campus during a party to celebrate the beginning of classes.

Roughly 200 students from Clark Atlanta University, Spelman, and Morehouse were caught in the middle of a heated exchange at the Robert W. Woodruff Library. According to Atlanta Police Captain William Rucker, the confrontation was between two groups that were “targeting each other.” Leaving the unlucky students in the crossfire, two women from Clark and two from Spelman were injured.

Since the crime took place so close to student housing, many who attended the fete were unable to go home. The shooter(s) injured four women, shooting one in the chest, another in the leg, and leaving two others grazed by bullets. The students were treated at Grady Health System and there were no casualties. As police begin their search for suspects, they are hopeful surveillance footage from the library contains useful leads.
