“The Desperate Housewives actress, 56, faced a judge on Friday afternoon”
A sentence of 14 days in jail doesn’t sound like much, but to someone like Felicity Huffman, it might as well be 18 months.
Felicity Huffman Sentenced to 14 Days Behind Bars in College Admissions Scam
Felicity Huffman was sentenced to 14 days behind bars for her role in the college admissions scandal.
The Desperate Housewives actress, 56, faced a judge on Friday afternoon in a federal courtroom in Boston. In addition to the 14 days incarceration, the judge fined her $30,000 and said she would be on supervised release for one year. She will also have to do 250 hours of community service.
Huffman arrived in court holding the hand of her husband, William H. Macy. She wore a short-sleeved navy blue dress and low-heeled beige pumps.
She tearfully addressed the judge prior to sentencing, apologizing for her criminal actions and saying she deserved whatever sentence she got. While she spoke, Macy’s eyes welled up with tears.
After the sentence was handed down, Macy walked over to the defendant’s table and rubbed Huffman’s shoulders and hugged her from behind. Huffman reached up and held his hand. Later, Macy consoled Huffman, twice telling her, “It’s OK.”
She later left the courthouse with Macy and family members without speaking to reporters. The group got into a Chevy Traverse SUV that drove away.
