By

William H. Macy took to the city streets on his Triumph motorcycle on Monday, shortly after his wife, Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty to charges related to her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

The 69-year-old Shameless star was spotted riding his hunter green motorcycle around Los Angeles, looking somewhat forlorn behind the visor of his white helmet.

Macy donned a thick brown jacket, dark jeans, brown boots and riding gloves while zipping around town, following Huffman's appearance in court, and her subsequent public apology.

Huffman, along with 12 other parents and one university athletic coach involved in the massive college admissions cheating scandal, pleaded guilty to charges of mail fraud and honest services mail fraud on Monday.

In this case, the US Attorney is recommending incarceration at the low end of the sentencing guidelines, a fine or other financial penalty of $20,000, and 12 months supervised release for the 13 individuals pleading guilty.

Huffman released a statement following her court appearance, profusely apologizing for her participation in the infamous admissions scheme.

"I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office," Huffman said in a statement. "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."

As ET previously reported, Huffman allegedly paid $15,000 to help get her and Macy's eldest daughter, 18-year-old Sofia, into an elite college by cheating on the SAT.

Macy was not charged alongside his wife -- unlike Lori Loughlin and husband Mossimo Giannulli, who were both arrested and charged for their participation -- reportedly due to Macy being less involved in the scheme and corresponding less with the mastermind, William Singer, according to the Los Angeles Times.

However, a source previously told ET that the situation has put "a tremendous amount of pressure" on them and their 21-year marriage.

"This situation has been very trying on Felicity and William's marriage. They love each other but they've been arguing a lot," the source said of the couple, who also share a 16-year-old daughter, Georgia.
