Lori Loughlin & Felicity Huffman Any Plea Deal Will Have Prison Attached
A source connected to the prosecution tells TMZ, any plea would come with a recommendation by prosecutors that the actresses serve some time behind bars. The official told us, “You can’t have people being treated differently because they have money. That’s how we got to this place. Every defendant will be treated the same.”
Prosecutors will not have the final word if the cases are plea bargained. The U.S. Attorney would make a recommendation to the judge, but the judge has the final word.
Lori and Felicity each face a maximum of 5 years in prison if convicted of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
Our sources say it is “likely” plea bargain discussions will begin, but we’re told no plea deal has been made.
Felicity is accused of paying Singer $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT test.
