Outrage is growing as word spreads about the 14-day jail sentence actress Felicity Huffman received for her part in a college admissions scheme.
Huffman’s sentencing exposes the great divide between average Americans and the upper class elites who play by a different set of rules than the rest of us.
Just ask Hillary Clinton and James Comey.
Huffman was part of a college admission scam, where she bought her daughter higher SAT scores.
In addition to Huffman’s 14 day jail sentence, she received a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service, and a year’s worth of probation.
As reported by Tom Ciccotta, “Huffman was accused of paying $15,000 in exchange for a specialized SAT proctor that would correct answers on her daughter’s exam. Huffman’s daughter scored 400 points higher on the doctored exam than she did on her previous SAT exam.”
“I am deeply sorry to the students, parents, colleges, and universities who have been impacted by my actions,” Huffman said in the courtroom before she was sentenced Friday. ”I am sorry to my daughter, Sophia, my daughter, Georgia, and my husband, Bill. I have betrayed them all.”
Ciccotta also reported: “Lori Loughlin, the former Full House actress, is due in court on October 2. Loughlin has been accused of paying $500,000 to have her two daughters admitted into the University of Southern California. As part of the alleged scam, Loughlin created fake athletic profiles by asking her daughters to pose on rowing equipment for photos even though they had never competed.” [Breitbart]
In stark contrast, an Alabama man was sentenced to life in prison for stealing $50 from a bakery. He was released after 36 years (gee, how lucky for him), but it’s a sad example of how regular people never catch the type of breaks the elites do.
A man in Alabama just had his sentence changed so that he’ll be getting out of prison in the next few days.
His crime: Stealing $50.75 from a bakery 36 years ago.
Alvin Kennard was 22 years old when he was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole back in 1984. Alabama state law at the time mandated that since it was his fourth offense, the judge had no other option than to sentence him to life in prison. [ABC News]
Many people were angered over the lenient sentence and took to Twitter to express their outrage.
Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days in jail. Last week, the Manhattan DA recommended 30 days jail for stealing a loaf of bread. A few months ago, Manhattan DA recommended one year jail for a man who stole cough syrup and toothpaste from a Duane Reade. #injustice
