Felicity Huffman’s sentence has taken her to a North Carolina prison on Tuesday to begin her sentence.
The Desperate Housewives actress was given a 14 day sentence due to her role in the college admissions scandal. The 56 year old paid someone to alter her SAT scores, which made her score jump 400 points to 1420 out of 1600.
Her representative revealed that she surrendered to the Federal Correctional Institute in Dublin, California.
Her prison number is 77806-112. She will have to serve the full 14 days as there is no early release for good behaviour for sentences that are shorter than a year.
Under Huffman’s sentence, handed to her by US District Judge Indira Talwani, Huffman also has to pay $30,000 and do 250 hours of community service.
The actress said in a statement, “There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period. I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions.”
She added, “And I especially want to apologise to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children.”
Huffman’s representative said, “Ms. Huffman is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions.”
The rep continued, “She will begin serving the remainder of the sentence Judge Talwani imposed — one year of supervised release, with conditions including 250 hours of community service — when she is released.”
Huffman is among the 50 people charged in the college admissions trial. She is best known for her work in Housewives and her Oscar-nominated movie Transamerica.
