    Felicity Huffman Sentenced to 14 Days in Prison

    The actress received her sentence Friday for her role in a nationwide college admissions cheating scheme. (Published Friday, Sept. 13, 2019)

    Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison, 250 hours of community service and a $30,000 fine for unlawfully paying $15,000 to improve her daughter's SAT scores. 

    The "Desperate Housewives" actress pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy and fraud connected to a wider college admissions scheme that set the nation ablaze when it was uncovered earlier this year. 

    Read Huffman's full statement on the sentencing, below: 

    I accept the court’s decision today without reservation. I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period.

    I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children.

    I have learned a lot over the last six months about my flaws as a person. My goal now is to serve the sentence that the court has given me. I look forward to doing my community service hours and making a positive impact on my community. I also plan to continue making contributions wherever I can well after those service hours are completed.

    I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed.

    My hope now is that my family, my friends and my community will forgive me for my actions.
