Actress Felicity Huffman, known for her role on “Desperate Housewives,” is one of over 40 individuals charged in a $25 million college entrance exam cheating scheme. Huffman is being accused of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and conspiracy to commit racketeering, among other charges, TMZ reported.
The two daughters that Huffman allegedly may have been trying to get into an elite college are Sophia Grace Macy and Georgia Grace Macy. Here’s everything we know about Huffman’s kids amid the scandal.
Sophia Grace Macy
Sophia Grace is the eldest daughter of Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy. She is 18-years-old and is looking to follow in her parents’ footsteps as an actress, Us Weekly reported in May. She was involved in the arts in high school. “She’s good. I’ve seen her in a lot of plays,” Macy told the publication at the time.
Huffman and Macy allegedly made a charitable contribution of $15,000 on behalf of Sophia to allow her to have twice the amount of time to take the SAT while the test proctor agreed to secretly correct her answers after the test, TMZ reports. It is also alleged that Huffman’s daughter received a score of 1420 on her SAT, which was approximately a 400-point improvement over her PSAT.
Georgia Grace Macy
Georgia Grace is the youngest daughter of Huffman and Macy. She is 16-years-old and according to the same US Weekly interview, Macy said she is “crazy about political science.”
While Huffman was arrested in the scheme, her two daughters were not and may have not known anything about it, TMZ reports. Macy was also not indicted.
