So what about people who don't have money...really bad optics..incarceration is a deterrent for the vast majority of people.

As a judge I'd sentence Felicity to do 10 episodes of Fuller House where she plays Fifi Bob Sagets sexy french maid.

What’s crazy is that Loughlin and her husband are pleading not guilty. 4 months is going to look like a good deal if they are found guilty and it’s hard to not see that happening.

Yeah agreed.

From everything I've read, Loughlin has received just AWFUL advice from her lawyer.

I have to wonder if she and her billionaire husband think they're a little above the law.

I'd guess that if it's the usual celeb prison, it will be like a country club and she'll be out in 3 weeks.

https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/...513-story.html

"— Legal experts said there is a strong prospect that Huffman will get electronic monitoring and not actual prison time."

— “She was first out the gate to take responsibility and will be handsomely rewarded for it, especially if the other defendants drag their feet, which [we’re] beginning to see,” Louis Shapiro, a federal defense attorney in Los Angeles, told The Times last month.

He wasn't at court with her today. She attended with her brother.

I do. it's not hard to hide something from a spouse, especially a spouse that isn't looking for wrongdoing.

it was a one off she just had to keep he mouth shut about. not like she was covering up a long term drinking problem or something.

From CTV:

Quote:
Investigators have said Macy, 69, was with her when admissions consultant Rick Singer explained how he could arrange for the cheating because he "controlled" a test centre. Both Huffman and Macy agreed to the plan, authorities say, but Macy has not been charged. Prosecutors have not explained why.

While not on the same scale Felicity is very accomplished in her own right, but I'm smelling some sort of plea deal where she would plead guilty, do a couple of months and he would continue to make about $8 million per season doing Shameless.

P.S. if you haven't seen Shameless you need to check it out

ok it seems I was wrong about Macy not knowing. no idea why he wasn't also charged. like you said, part of the plea deal maybe?

but it really is easy to hide something from a spouse, especially when at least one of them is often away from home.

Felicity Huffman is scheduled to be sentenced by a judge on Friday. Prosecutors have suggested four months in prison and a $20,000 fine. Her lawyers are asking for a sentence of one year of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $20,000 fine.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/09/us/fe...dge/index.html

good article that also quotes the letter Huffman wrote to the court as to why she did it and how she got to that point.
