In April 2019, Felicity pled guilty for her involvement in the college admissions scandal. The Academy Award-nominated actress admitted she paid admissions consultant Rick Singer $15,000 to have someone proctor and correct Sophia’s SAT exam. The 19-year-old’s score was inflated to 1420 out of a possible perfect score of 1600.

According to court documents, the Desperate Housewives star considered toying with Georgia’s SAT scores after she tampered with Sophia’s. However, she had a change of heart. "But the decision haunted me terribly; I knew it was not right. I finally came to my senses and told Mr. Singer to stop the process for Georgia," Felicity confessed.

Unfortunately, the damage was still done to the ones she loves. "In my desperation to be a good mother I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot. I see the irony in that statement now because what I have done is the opposite of fair. I have broken the law, deceived the educational community, betrayed my daughter, and failed my family," Felicity continued in the court documents.

The insider added, "Felicity felt like the women in that facility were being discarded and left behind; they were forgotten. She loved the women there and bonded with them. When she left she felt guilty leaving them behind."
