US actress Felicity Huffman has pleaded guilty to fraudulently conspiring to win a college place for her daughter.
In a Boston court, the Desperate Housewives star admitted paying $15,000 (£11,500) to have her daughter's exam answers secretly corrected in 2017.
In a statement last month, she said she was in "full acceptance" of her guilt.
Prosecutors recommended a four-month prison term and a $20,000 fine. Huffman, 56, was among 50 charged in the college admissions scandal.
The wealthy parents charged in the investigation allegedly paid bribes, had exams altered, and even had their children edited into stock photos to fake sporting talents.
They managed to fraudulently secure spots for the teenagers at elite US universities including Yale, Georgetown and Stanford.
