The actor Felicity Huffman was sentenced on Friday to 14 days in prison for paying $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT scores in the college admissions scandal that ensnared dozens of wealthy and well-connected parents.
Huffman, 56, who has starred in TV hits including Desperate Housewives, Get Shorty and Frasier, became the first of 34 parents to be sentenced. She was also given a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release.
In a statement, she said she accepted her sentence “without reservation” and said: “There no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period.”
