‘The Five’ debate whether Felicity Huffman’s punishment fits her crime


>>Juan: FOX NEWS ALERT. ACTRESS FELICITY HUFFMAN HEADED TO PRISON. A JUDGE SENTENCING HER TO 14 DAYS BEHIND BARS, A $30,000 FINE AND ONE YEAR PROBATION. HUFFMAN IS THE FIRST PARENT TO FACE PUNISHMENT IN THE BOMBSHELL COLLEGE ADMISSION SCANDAL. THE HOLLYWOOD STAR ADMITTED TO PAYING $15,000 TO RIG HER DAUGHTER’S SAT SCORE. HUFFMAN CRYING IN COURT, SHOWING REMORSE AND ADMITTING SHE BROKE THE LAW. BUT THE JUDGE SIDING WITH THE PROSECUTORS WHO PUSHED FOR PRISON TIME INSTEAD OF JUST PROBATION. THE NEWS NOT JUST IMPACTING HUFFMAN. YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT OTHERS INVOLVED IN THE CHEATING SCHEME INCLUDING LORI LOVE LOUGHLIN WHO PLEADED NOT GUILTY STILL AWAITING THEIR FATE. THIS IS VERY INTERESTING IN THAT THE PROSECUTORS HAD ASKED FOR A YEAR OF ONE MONTH TO 15 MONTHS. SHE ENDS UP NOW WITH 14 DAY SENTENCE IS THAT FAIR?>>Dana: WELL, HER LAWYERS WERE SAYING THAT SHE SHOULD PROBABLY BE ALLOWED JUST TO HAVE PROBATION AND TO STAY AT HOME AND MAYBE DO 250 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE. HOWEVER, BECAUSE, REMEMBER, IF THIS IS A FINANCIAL SITUATION WHERE SHE HAS A LOT OF MONEY. SO, HAVING HER PAY A BIG FINE IS NOT A PUNISHMENT. THEY HAVE PLENTY OF MONEY. $30,000 FINE FOR SOMEBODY ELSE WOULD BE REALLY OUT OF REACH. I DO THINK THAT PROSECUTORS ARE SAYING WE HAVE GOT TO SEND A MESSAGE. SHE IS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO STAY AT HOME IN HER HOLLYWOOD HILLS LUXURY WITH INFINITY POOL. THEY ACTUALLY USED THOSE WORDS. I THINK THIS IS A SIGN THAT THE OTHER PARENTS THAT ARE AWAITING THEIR SENTENCING, BECAUSE MANY OF THEM PLED GUILTY, THEY ARE PROBABLY GOING TO FACE THE SAME THING. I DO WONDER WHAT LORI LOUGHLIN IS THINKING THOUGH, IF THIS GOES TO TRIAL, IF SHE WINS, SHE WINS AND THEN MAYBE ALL OF THIS STUFF IS FOR NOT. IF SHE LOSES, SHE IS PROBABLY LOOKING AT A LOT MORE TIME. I’M LOOKING AT EMILY BECAUSE I DON’T REALLY KNOW. I’M ASSUMING SHE WOULD BE LOOKING AT A LOT MORE TIME THAN 14 DAYS.>>Emily: WE TALKED ABOUT THIS BEFORE WHEN YOU GO TO WHITE COLLAR CRIME DETENTION FACILITIES, ESSENTIALLY ALL THE PEOPLE IN THERE WITH 10 YEAR AND 15 YEAR SENTENCES THOSE ARE NOT THE ONES WHO PLED OUT. THOSE ARE THE ONES THAT WENT TO TRIAL AND JURIES ISSUE THESE HARSH SENTENCES ALL THE TIME. I WAS WORRIED, FRANKLY, AS A CITIZEN THAT SHIELD GET ZERO PRISON TIME BECAUSE FOR ME, FIRST OF ALL, THE GOVERNMENT PUNISHES CRIMES, RIGHT? THERE IS A REASON WHY CONSPIRACIES ARE ILLEGAL. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT WHETHER YOU ACTUALLY WENT THROUGH WITH IT OR WHETHER THE CRIME WAS ACTUALLY ABLE TO BE COMMITTED AND THERE WAS SOME TYPE OF QUOTE VICTIM THAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ARGUING HERE EVEN THE PROBATION OFFICE SAID IT’S AN ECONOMIC OFFENSE. IT WAS ACTUALLY A LOT MORE THAN THAT IT WAS STRAIGHT UP FRAUD. SO I HAVE SEEN FOR A TAX EVASION CASE FOR A FEW THOUSAND DOLLARS PROBATION OFFICE DENY AND REFUSE TO ENDORSE SOMEONE REQUESTING HOME CONFINEMENT WITH A DISABLED DEPENDENT AND HERE SHE WAS ARGUING FOR ONE WITH HER INFINITY POOL. AS THE PROSECUTOR SAID SHE WAS MORALLY CLUELESS AND OUT OF A SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT ONLY. I’M 100 PERCENT GRATEFUL THAT SHE AT LEAST GOT SOME JAIL TIME.>>Juan: JESSE, IF THAT WAS THE PROSECUTION’S CASE, LET ME GIVE YOU THE DEFENSE CASE, RIGHT? THE DEFENSE CASE IS SHE WASN’T INVOLVED IN ANY OF THE FRAUD WITH REGARDS TO, YOU KNOW, GINNING UP AN ATHLETIC RECORD FOR THE KID. WHAT SHE DID AND SHE WRITES THIS IN A LETTER TO THE COURT. SHE SAID SHE DID THIS OUT OF MATERNAL DEVOTION, INSECURITY. HER DAUGHTER HAS A LEARNING DISABILITY. AND THE DAUGHTER, BY THE WAY, GOT A 1420 ON THE SAT SCORE OUT OF A MAX OF 1600. AND HER LAWYER SAID SHE IS REMORSEFUL. YOU KNOW, THERE IS NO NEED TO JAIL HER BECAUSE THE MESSAGE TO THE OTHER PARENTS IS DON’T DO THIS. THERE IS NO NEED TO PUT THIS TALENTED ACTRESS IN JAIL.>>Jesse: WELL, JOE BIDEN SAID LAST NIGHT THEY SHOULDN’T PUT ANYBODY IN PRISON THAT COMMITS A NONVIOLENT OFFENSE. SO SHE SHOULD BE WALKING SCOT-FREE AND TAKING A DIP IN HER INFINITY POOL THIS AFTERNOON. I DON’T KNOW. I JUST THINK THE COMMUNITY SERVICE, 250 HOURS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE.>>THAT’S A LOT OF HOURS.>>Jesse: THAT’S A LOT OF HOURS. I BET SHE WOULD TRADE THAT FOR ANOTHER WEEK BEHIND BARS. NO ONE LIKES COMMUNITY SERVICE. [LAUGHTER] PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SKIPPING OUT ON COMMUNITY SERVICE IT IS THAT BAD.>>Juan: WORSE THAN BEING BEHIND BARS?>>Jesse: JUAN, YOU KNOW THE TRUTH.>>Juan: WHAT’S THE TRUTH?>>Jesse: THE OTHER THING IS THIS IF YOU ARE LORI LOUGHLIN AND LOOKING AT THIS YOU TAKE A PLEA TOMORROW. IF YOU ARE GUILTY, YOU ALWAYS TAKE A PLEA.>>Dana: BUT CAN YOU?>>Jesse: IT MIGHT EVEN BE TOO LATE. SHE HAS TO COME CRAWLING BACK TO THE PROSECUTION AND BEG THEM. BUT I DON’T KNOW. I THINK SHE MIGHT BE TOO FAR ALONG. THE OTHER THING OF IT IS THIS HAS DESTROYED NOT ONLY THE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE DAUGHTER. BECAUSE THE DAUGHTER NOW SAYS MOM, WHY DIDN’T YOU TRUST ME? WHY DIDN’T YOU THINK I COULD DO THIS MYSELF? SO THAT’S OUT THE WINDOW. AND THEN WILLIAM H. MACY, HOW DOES HE WATCH HIS WIFE GO TO PRISON AND YOU DIDN’T THINK HE WAS INVOLVED IN THIS AT ALL? SOMEHOW HE GETS OUT OF THIS. I DON’T KNOW HOW. GREAT LAWYERING. MAYBE THERE WASN’T A HARD TRAIL EVIDENCE, BUT THAT’S A REALLY AWKWARD SITUATION. AND THEN FINALLY THIS COUNTRY LOVES WATCHING CELEBRITIES GO DOWN IN FLAMES. IF YOU ARE A WORLD CLASS CELEBRITY, LIKE GREG GUTFELD WHEN HE GOES OUT IN FLAMES. YOU LET PEOPLE JUST DANCING ON HIS GRAVE. SO I DON’T WANT TO SIT HERE AND DANCE ON HER GRAVE. I HOPE SHE, YOU KNOW, SURVIVES HER STINT AND RECOVERS NICELY.>>Juan: I’M TOLD THEY HAD HIM ON TAPE THEY DIDN’T HAVE WILLIAM H. MACY ON TAPE.>>Jesse: I KNOW. IT’S HARD TO BELIEVE SHE DID THIS ISOLATED FROM THE HUSBAND.>>Juan: I SEE YOU NODDING.>>Greg: WILLIAM H. MACY? YOU MEAN WILLIAM HUSSEIN MACY? I HAVE INFINITY POOL CRAWL IN THE TUB AND CRANK ME SOME JOURNEY. JOURNEY FAN. I CAN SAFELY SAY THE ONLY PERSON IN PRISON NAMED FELICITY, YOU KNOW, THAT’S ALL I GOT. [LAUGHTER] HONESTLY, I HAVE GOT IT TELL YOU. I REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS STORY AND I’M HAPPY THAT WE LEAD WITH THIS STORY BECAUSE IT MEANS THE NEWS IS GOOD. THE ECONOMY IS GOOD. EVERYTHING IS GOING GREAT. SO THIS IS THE BIG STORY ON THE MOST POPULAR TV SHOW IN AMERICA. THIS ONE. THE BIG LESSON HERE, OF COURSE, CHILDREN ARE A PAIN IN THE BUTT. SO IF YOU HAVE A SLOTH, YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SENDING A SLOTH TO COLLEGE, RIGHT? BUT YOU HAVE GOT KIDS. ALL THEY DO DO IS WANT, WANT, WANT. CHILDREN GET IN THE WAY OF YOUR DRINKING. SHE IS GOING TO GO AWAY. AND YOU ARE RIGHT, JESSE. YOU ARE RIGHT. THIS IS WHY I HAVE APPLIED THE BRAKES ON MY EXPLOSIVE STARDOM. BECAUSE I KNOW THAT THE HIGHER I SAIL, THE HIGHER I GO IN THE SKY THE MORE PEOPLE WILL WANT TO SEE ME FAIL.>>Jesse: THAT’S SELF-IMPOSED?>>Greg: SELF- IMPOSED. I TURNED DOWN A LOT OF ACTING GIGS AND HOSTING THE BIGGER I GET THE BIGGER THE FALL. I’M KEEPING IT LOW ON “THE FIVE.” I’M HANGING OUT WITH YOU GUYS. I’M ONE OF THE FIVE. IT’S KIND OF COOL TO BE — PEOPLE SAY HELLO TO ME ON THE STREET. IT’S NOT LIKE I’M MOBBED THE WAY I USED TO BE.>>Jesse: YOU ARE DOING A VERY BIG JOB OF KEEPING YOURSELF OUT OF THE STARDOM.>>THIS IS A BIG SHOW AND BIG STORY TODAY. THAT’S GOOD NEWS. WE SHOULD BE HAPPY.>>Jesse: WILLIAM HUSSEIN THAT’S WHAT IT IS.>>Greg: WILLIAM HUSSEIN MACY. SHEP TOTALLY IGNORED THAT PART.>>Juan: I WANTED TO RAISE ONE LAST POINT. IN ATLANTA, PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, PRINCIPALS WERE SENTENCED TO THREE YEARS IN JAIL FOR CHEATING ON STATE TEST SCORES. AN OHIO MOM, WHO GAVE THE WRONG ADDRESS TO GET HER KID INTO A SUBURBAN — BETTER SUBURBAN SCHOOL, GUESS WHAT? SHE GOT JAIL TIME.>>Jesse: CORY BOOKER HAD A GREAT LINE AT THE DEBATE IT’S BETTER TO BE RICH AND GUILTY THAN POOR AND INNOCENT IN THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY.>>Juan: BLACK AND WHITE.>>Jesse: I’M JUST TALKING ABOUT YOUR POINT IN ATLANTA.>>Greg: TRUMP SHOULD PARTNER.>>Jesse: YOU ARE MY

  1. Now, we all want the same thing happening to Madonna, Miley Cyrus, Debra Messing, Robert De Niro, Alex Baldwin . . and all the traitors.

  2. She is an entitled idiot and deserves what she got plus more! Others have been locked up for far less a crime for years… Get rid of the elites of this world, they are worse scum that the scum on the streets.

  3. Hey Juan it’s Jail not prison… jail time not prison time.. she’ll be in county jail…. but Crooked Comey gets nothing thus far?

  4. Jaun, the judge did not side with the prosecution, the judge sided with the law and frankly he let her off easy she should have gotten at least 18 months in jail that usually the minimum from breaking laws Hollywood privilege pays off again

  5. I thought u had to go to county jail and ride out a few days later. But then again that might be only a Michigan thing..never knew you could go straight to prison!!! But if the girl has a learning disability then wouldn’t it be smart to fix that and help her instead of cheating bcz that’ll hinder more than help her

  6. How many thousands of colleges are filled with thousands of students whose elitist parents did what Felicity Huffman & Lourie Loughlin did? Thousands of students fill those seats fraudulently.

  7. There are millions of parents who cannot afford tutors & private prep schools or even the current ACT or SAT prep book. If her child had all this & more available at her disposal & she still didn't score high enough to get into the college of their choice, then let the chips fall where they may. There are thousands of colleges that would've been fine for their kid, without resorting to fraud & corruption. Wonder if Macy & Huffman will get audited, since there is a trust factor now.

  8. Giving someone money is not illegal, nor is cheating on a test. No one was going to lose any money, so there’s technically no financial fraud.

    Misuse of prosecutorial discretion.

  9. Prison time lol! She gets to do it at HER CONVENIENCE – IMMEDIATELY HANDCUFFED & MARCHED INTO PRISON WOULD HAVE BEEN SATISFYING – 2 SYSTEMS – SHAME!!!!!

  10. The double standard for celebrities is sickening where is the justice Lady Justice is supposed to wear a blind so that Justice is for all not leniency on the rich

  11. The fraud being done on education and knowledge is a abomination on Scholars and the time and Punishment doesn't fit the crime

  12. Too bad you're not above the law just because you have money and Celebrity status. Let your daughter make it with her brain if she's smart enough.

  13. Calling B.S. on the kids not knowing (or rowing). It's a shame they already have money and will profit even more from this somehow. I smell victimization on this and it's not the potential students that missed out on a spot bribed for.

  14. Then she will be allowed to write a book about her stay i prison. However, for two weeks in jail is not prison???????????? I am a talented person should I get the same sentence for the same offense.

  15. Good, she deserves it, now what about William Macy? Maternal devotion or not, what about the kid who's place she took. The kid that lost out!!

  16. Laurie Laughlin should be subjected to a long, drawn-out process of having her face removed with a cheese grater then drowned an a vat of pig excrement.

  17. I told my husband and I KNEW she'd get a slap on the wrist, and he said, no, she broke too many federal laws, this is the big leagues now. I guess I was right. She did get a slap on the wrist. I'm boycotting anything she will be on in the future and sadly, her husband, too. He was in on it even though he didn't "sign the checks". And I did so want to catch up on "Shamless", but, nope, not going to do it now.

  18. stop FRAUD! Fraud is Fraud. The USA is a country of Law and Order. Let's just all move to Africa, if we want to experience lawlessness and fraud and corruption. What counts for one, counts for all!!

  19. That's terrible sending a woman of breeding into a commoner jail she will be treated terribly,
    What about the political elites in America sending there uneducated brats to top universities

  20. Lmao hollywood hills luxury and her infinity pool. These rich tools are so far seperated from the rest of us.

  21. prison was TOO lite!!! It should have been 60-90 days!!!! 30 grand is fair. but she got a slap on the wrist!!! time to burn hollyweird to the ground and start over

  22. Lori is a fool and she's looking at a bunch of jail time! They are going to punish her for not showing remorse and admitting guilt! Lori will need the paramedics when they tell her she's going to do 20 years in prison!

  23. I understand there is a poor black woman serving a five year sentence for lying about where she lived so her son could be in a better school. Our country has been hijacked..

  24. Thank God for my DVR. I can watch the 5 without listening to One Lunatic Fringe word from Juan and any other liberal pondent. Sorry if I'm trolling I just had to get that out

  25. How is the next generation going to learn about integrity when all they're seeing is corruption and scandal?
    We teach by example, folks.
    This woman deserves a few years behind bars. Period. There are people spending decades in jail for crimes they didn't even commit!

  26. Why do you need to take a test to pay 💰 for an education offered to adults? Once you are 18 if you want something or to go somewhere you PAY 💰 for it because you are an ADULT. Its like going to a concert. If you really really want to go you pay 💰 a scalper. If you want a pricey college you 💰 pay. I really don’t see the problem.

  27. Rich people are not punished by fines. The only punishment they feel, is loss of freedom.
    It was NOT a victimless crime. When someone receives something they don't deserve, someone else is being denied what they deserve.

  28. I don't understand how the person offering the bribe committed a crime, but the person who accepted it did not? Also, how is this a concern of the government anyway? Isn't this a transaction between two private entities? If it isn't… why isn't the college solely responsible?

  29. People use their influence to help their family and friends get ahead? What a shock! When are all the U.S. Senators going to be punished for sending their mediocre kids to ivy league schools?

  30. lol my favorite thing about this…next year, as a celebrity, she will be trying to tell everyone who to vote for like we should respect her opinion because she is better then most at being fake.

  31. William Hall Macy. Just fyi. But yes, I despise the difference in laws and their application between regular folks and the rich.

  32. For the last 30+ years 'students' that can run fast or shoot a basketball are given scholarships to the institurions of higher learning. Barely able to read and write, they get an academic pass. They graduate or go pro just as ignorant as they started.
    Instead of their parents being held accountable for their childrens lack of education, they get a payday from their physically gifted child's athletic prowess.
    What is the difference?

  33. 2 wk vacation bible school. Oh my! Celebrities make much out of their popularity and ability to pontificate and lecture others. Therefore they should get the heavier hammer when they do wrong. Being a prima donna should work both ways.

  34. Meanwhile…Tanya McDowell is doing 5 years for lying about her home address in order to send her kid to a better school. Black & White, Rich & Poor, or a splash of both?

  35. What difference does there opinion make , answer None there Not Judges all these People are doing is blowing Hot Air nothing else…..

  36. Doesn't matter what us common scrubs think or feel….celebrities will always get the feather, while the lesser humans get the sword.

  37. she should have gotten the year and the fine!! everybody else would be sitting behind bars and having huge fines to pay… sad thing is… average person would lose their job, house, and car repossessed.. and would have to put on every job app. that they are a convicted felon and fill out the please explain!! all she has to do is sit tight for 2 weeks in her own cell will everything money can get you in there….. and 35k she wont even see a dent in her money!! and then do another gig or write a book about this and make tons of money off it!!!

  38. I feel honored to have a 1110 SAT and earn it with my blood, sweat and real tears than using money for it…. that's called "intelligence"

  39. A 1420 SAT score with a learning challenge is impressive (no sarcasm, I’m serious) she should be proud as a mother about that…
