Felicity Huffman was teary-eyed as she apologized to her daughter in a U.S. federal court in Boston at the sentencing hearing for her role in the college admissions bribery scandal.
The “Desperate Housewives” star was then sentenced to two-weeks in prison.
Back in April, Huffman agreed to guilty plea on one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
The prosecution had called for a month in prison and a $20,000 fine. Instead, it will just be 2 weeks and a $30,000 dollar fine as well as a year’s probation and 250 hours of community service.
Huffman was one of a number of names caught up in the scandal, where she paid a consultant $15,000 to help inflate her daughter’s SAT score.
