Actress Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days in prison, along with completing 250 hours of community service and paying a $30,000 fine, due to her participation in the college admissions scandal.
Most of the 50 people charged in this scandal were parents and coaches and none of the children received punishment.
“There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period. I would like to apologise again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions. And I especially want to apologise to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children,” Felicity said in a statement after her sentencing.
The judge has stated that she believes Felicity takes full responsibility for all of her actions, but “trying to be a good mother does not excuse” anything.
She will be reporting to prison in six weeks, and will not be receiving the sentence of one month in prison and a fine of $20,000, which was the original sentence.
