Here's when Felicity Huffman is expected to plead guilty

Felicity Huffman's next court date in the college admissions scandal has been moved up.

A Boston judge agreed Monday to move up the former "Desperate Housewives" star's court date from May 21 to May 13 because the case's lead prosecutor will be out of town on the previous date. Huffman is expected to officially plead guilty to the charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud against her during the plea hearing.

Earlier this month, the actress released her first statement on the scandal, revealing her intentions to plead guilty to all charges.

"I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney’s Office," she said on April 8. "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. I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community."

As part of the nationwide cheating scandal, Huffman was accused of paying $15,000 to have her older daughter's incorrect SAT answers corrected after she turned in her test in an effort to boost her scores and thus get her into an elite university. Her husband, actor William H. Macy, was not charged -- here's why.

Huffman reportedly took a plea deal, agreeing to plead guilty in exchange for a lesser sentence. She's expected to serve a maximum of four months behind bars.

Meanwhile, "Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin and her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, officially entered their not guilty pleas through lawyers on Monday, which they had previously done in court documents. Because of their refusal to admit guilt as part of a plea deal, they were also slapped with money laundering charges and could face up to 40 years each in prison.

They're accused of paying $500,000 to get both of their daughters into USC under the false pretenses that they were recruited for the women's crew team. They had never rowed before.
