真?絕望主婦!美名校舞弊案件“女主角”,判了!
來源:21英語網    日期: 2019-09-16

此前轟動一時的美國大規模入學舞弊案件(戳這里回顧),迎來了最新消息!

美國當地時間9月13日(上周五),《絕望主婦》中的女演員Felicity Huffman由于在大學入學舞弊案中的行為被判入獄14天!

Actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced last Friday to 14 days in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.



除此之外,美國地區法官Indira Talwani還判處Huffman3萬美元罰款,為期一年的監督釋放,以及250小時的社區服務,Huffman成為案件中第一位結案的家長。與女演員Lori Loughlin一樣,Huffman也是這一事件最“著名”的人員。

Along with prison time, U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani sentenced Huffman to a $30,000 fine, supervised release for one year and 250 hours of community service in the scandal's first sentencing of a parent. Huffman, along with actress Lori Loughlin, is also one of the case's most famous.

據悉,檢方曾尋求將Huffman的刑期定為一個月,此前Huffman已經承認花了15000美元為自己的大女兒Sophia購買SAT考試(美國高考)的正確答案。

Prosecutors sought one month of prison for the former "Desperate Housewives" actress, who has admitted to paying $15,000 to have someone correct answers on the SAT exam for her older daughter, Sophia.

上周五的法庭上,Huffman為自己在案件中的行為道歉:“我為自己的所作所為承擔全部責任,并為我的罪行道歉。任何懲罰我都接受。”她須在10月25日到監獄報到。

In court last Friday, Huffman apologized for her role in the scandal, saying, "I take full responsibility of my actions and making amends with my crime. I will deserve whatever punishment you give me." She must report to prison on Oct. 25.


 
據CNN此前報道,今年3月,美國曝光大規模入學舞弊案件,可能成為美國歷史上最大名校招生丑聞。這一事件提醒眾人,富人家庭可以通過舞弊得到更大的特權。而有人堅信,這還只是冰山一角。

The massive college admissions scam, thought to be the biggest ever prosecuted in the United States, is a harsh reminder that wealthy families can cheat their way to even greater privilege. And some say this scandal is just the tip of the iceberg.

CNN今年3月的報道:

聯邦檢察官:有錢父母,演員,教練都在大規模入學舞弊丑聞中被起訴


CNN報道指出,這些人或在招生標準考試上作弊,或行賄大學教練、校方工作人員,以便讓學生以體育特長生身份入學——哪怕這些學生從未從事過該運動項目。而卷入招生丑聞的,還都是美國的頂尖學府,包括耶魯大學(Yale University)、斯坦福大學(Stanford University)、喬治城大學(Georgetown University)、加利福尼亞大學洛杉磯分校(UCLA)和南加利福尼亞大學(University of Southern California)等學校。



檢方表示,這些家長通過一家名為The Key的大學入學咨詢業務公司來運作此事。該公司CEO威廉•里克•辛格面對四項指控,并已認罪。

It was all orchestrated by William Rick Singer, CEO of a college admissions prep company called The Key. Singer pleaded guilty to four charges and admitted that everything a prosecutor accused him of "is true."



本案13日開庭前,Huffman在遞交給法官的信件中表示,如果不加入辛格的作弊計劃,她就擔心自己成為了一位“壞母親”,并表示,不希望自己有學習障礙的女兒因為數學成績不佳而失去入學機會。

Huffman, in a letter to the judge submitted before the hearing, said she feared she would be a "bad mother" if she didn't take part in Singer's cheating scheme. She said she didn't want her daughter, who has learning disabilities, to not get admitted to college because of a low math score.

不過,法官則表示:想當一個好母親,不能成為這件事(舞弊案)的借口。

"Trying to be a good mother doesn’t excuse this," the judge said.



在當天宣判后給媒體的聲明中,Huffman表示她“毫無保留的接受法庭今日的判決。”

Huffman said that she accepts the "court's decision today without reservation" in a statement released to the media.

“我違反了法律,我承認,我服罪。我的所作所為沒有借口,也沒有可辯解的。我向我的女兒、丈夫、我的家人以及教育界道歉。尤其是,我要向那些刻苦學習進入大學的學生、以及為了支持子女而付出巨大犧牲的家長們道歉。”

"I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. " Huffman said in the statement. "I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children."

“我承諾,在未來的日子里,我將努力去過誠實的生活,為女兒和家庭樹立更好的榜樣,在需要我的地方貢獻時間和精力。我希望我的家庭、朋友和社區可以原諒我的行為。”

"I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed," Huffman said. "My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions."



此外,Huffman的丈夫,曾出演過美劇《無恥之徒》的演員William H. Macy則沒有在案件中受到指控。因為目前尚不清楚他對于妻子的行為是否知情。

Felicity Huffman's husband William H. Macy, the "Shameless" star, has not been charged in connection with the college cheating scandal because it's unclear if he was aware of his wife's alleged activities.
