Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman is paying the price for her corrupt ways after a judge has sentenced her to jail.
The actress, who was caught in a college admissions scandal for her daughter, was sentenced to 14 days in prison as well as 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.
Huffman will serve time when she reports to the bureau in six weeks, on October 25.
Huffman admitted to paying $15,000 (£11,500) to have her daughter’s exam answers secretly corrected in 2017.
In a federal court in Boston, the actress’ attorney requested that Huffman be allowed to spend her 14-day prison sentence at a federal correctional institution in Dublin, California, a “low security” correctional institution with 1,235 female inmates in Alameda County, about 35 miles outside of San Francisco.
This particular prison will not remove the general prisons rule of inmates wearing their khakis with their name and identification number printed on it, but it boasts certain privileges as well.
For example, inmates at FCI Dublin can sunbathe on the weekends, but they have to wear a shirt and shorts, the handbook says.
Inmates can watch the lobby television until 8:45 p.m. during the week, or until 11:45 p.m. on the weekends. Each month they are allowed to spend up to $320 at the commissary.
Huffman, who was accused of spending $15,000 to boost her daughter’s SAT scores, was the first of more than 30 parents charged in the scam to be sentenced. She had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
