Felicity Huffman and 13 others will plead guilty to charges brought as part of a massive college admissions cheating investigation, NBC News reports.

The actress was arrested last month as part of an investigation into parents paying bribes in order to have their children admitted to college. She was hit with charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud, with investigators saying she paid $15,000 to have a proctor help her daughter cheat on her SAT. Huffman's husband, actor William H. Macy, was not charged in the case.
