Felicity Huffman’s daughter can still retake SAT in wake of college admissions scandal

Sophia Macy, daughter of actress Felicity Huffman and actor William H. Macy, will not be barred from retaking the SAT that her mom initially paid someone $15,000 to fudge, according to reports.

Without evidence that she knew about her mother’s bribe to Rick Singer, who got an exam proctor to allow extra time and correct her wrong answers, there is nothing stopping the now 19-year-old from retaking the test, Vanity Fair reported.

Huffman, 56, was sentenced on Sept. 19 to 14 days in jail, 250 hours of community service, a $30,000 fine and one year of probation.
