Felicity Huffman sentenced to 14 days in prison for ‘Varsity Blues’ college scam


“Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days in prison for federal crimes stemming from the massive “Varsity Blues” college entrance scam.
Huffman also will have to pay a $30,000 fine, complete 250 hours of community service and serve one year of probation.
She is due to self-report to a yet-to-be-determined Bureau of Prisons facility Oct. 25.
Huffman, 56, learned her fate Friday and issued a statement shortly thereafter, accepting the judge’s decision.
“I accept the court’s decision today without reservation,” she said in the statement. “I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. 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. And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children.”
