Last month, Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, 55, along with Desperate Housewives actress Felicity Huffman, 56, were among those indicted in the largest college cheating scam in USA history.

A federal judge will have the final say on Huffman's sentence but prosecutors will recommend incarceration at the "low end" of the sentencing range, a $20,000 fine and 12 months of supervised release, according to a plea agreement.

"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", she asserted.

'My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. "My urge to help my daughter is no excuse to violate the law or engage in dishonesty", she explained following her plea deal was announced.

Huffman, however, allegedly paid much less than Loughlin and Giannulli.
