Felicity Huffman has officially turned herself in to start her light sentence for her involvement in the college bribery scandal.
According to NBC News, a representative said that Huffman surrendered to authorities at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, where she will spend the next two weeks for her part in the scandal. As we previously mentioned, she has also been ordered to pay a $30,000 fine and perform a total of 250 hours of community service.
The representative said in a statement, “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. 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.”
Earlier this year, she admitted to paying someone to correct her daughter’s college board test, giving her a score of 1420 out of a possible 1600.
After pleading guilty back in April, Huffman said in a statement, “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions. I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.”
Fellow actress Lori Loughlin has yet to be sentenced for her involvement in the scandal.
