AceShowbiz - Felicity Huffman was all smiles on Monday, June 10 as she celebrated her daughter's high school graduation while awaiting sentencing for her part in a U.S. college bribery scandal.
The "Desperate Housewives" star and her husband, William H. Macy, were joined by family and friends at Los Angeles High School of the Arts to mark 18-year-old Sofia Grace's academic achievement, and it was clear Huffman was keen to enjoy the moment as she was photographed happily greeting her loved ones at the event.
It's one of the few public appearances the 56-year-old has made since she was arrested in March as part of authorities' Operation Varsity Blues investigation.
She subsequently pleaded guilty to trying to rig a college entrance exam to help her eldest child win a place at an elite university, and admitted to paying thousands to have someone illegally correct her daughter's test answers.
As part of a plea deal with prosecutors in Boston, Massachusetts, which was made official in court last month (May 2019), officials recommended a prison term at the "low end" of the four to 10 months Huffman faces under federal sentencing guidelines.
She will learn her fate in September.
Huffman and Macy are also parents to another daughter, 17-year-old Georgia Grace.
