Felicity Huffman has been granted probation after court documents revealed there was “no victim” or any “actual or intended loss” in her roll in the college admissions scandal.
Even though the US Probation and Pretrial Services System’s report doesn’t recommend a sentence for Huffman, the report came down hard on her side of the story and her plea to avoid time behind bars.
Huffman is scheduled to be sentenced on Friday and the US Attorney’s Office has stated she should spend one month in jail and pay a $20,000 fine.
With tears in her eyes, she pleaded guilty earlier this year.
The probation report could reveal Huffman be given 250 hours community service, one year probation, a $20,000 fine but no jail time.
Huffman has recently stated, “My own fears and confidence, combined with a daughter who has learning disabilities often made me insecure and feel highly anxious from the beginning. I was always searching for the right book or the right piece of advice that would help me help my daughters or keep me from making the mistakes that might damage their lives.
“In my blind panic, I have done the exact thing that I was desperate to avoid. I have compromised my daughter’s future, the wholeness of my family and my own integrity.”
