Actress Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days behind bars for her role in the infamous college admissions scandal. The former Desperate Housewives star pleaded guilty back in May to paying $15,000 to fraudulently boost her daughter’s SAT scores. At her sentencing hearing in Boston, Huffman told the court that she was “deeply ashamed of what I have done.” She will spend 14 days in jail followed by one year of supervised release, along with a $30,000 fine and 250 hours of community service. Huffman is the first parent to be sentenced in connection with the scandal, which involves dozens of people including former Full House actress Lori Loughlin.
Does the sentence sound fair to you? Is jail time called for? How will this affect Huffman’s Hollywood career?
