After weeks of speculation over her involvement in the college bribery scandal, actress Felicity Huffman finally faced her fate on Monday (April 8) and pleaded guilty for her role in the scam.

“I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” Huffman said in a statement. “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.”

Huffman was arrested on March 12 and has been charged with one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud. If that wasn’t enough, just hours after her guilty plead, it was announced that the release of her comedy series “Otherhood” has been delayed by Netflix. And as of right now, there is no new premiere date for the show, in which Huffman stars alongside Patricia Arquette and Angela Bassett.

Huffman also is set to star in the Netflix miniseries “When They See Us,” but it looks as if that is still due to premiere as planned on May 31.
