Felicity Huffman reported to a California federal correctional institution Tuesday to serve time for her part in the college admissions scandal.
Huffman, 56, pleaded guilty in May and accepted responsibility for her part in the high-profile college admissions scandal that demonstrated the lengths wealthy parents will go in order to secure their kids a spot at the college of their choice.
The "Desperate Housewives" star pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud earlier this year. She confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her older daughter's answers on the SAT. She considered the same for her younger daughter but decided against it.
In addition to serving 14 days in prison, Huffman also received one year of probation, was ordered to perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine.

Never heard of her.. know the other lady from that 80s show. Cant imagine these people in prison
Meanwhile, Hillary walks free as a bird.
And yet Hunter Biden walks away with millions.
She really got screwed.
No one is going to get jail time for something like that normally.
She got the reverse elite treatment. Most times rich and famous get off easy because they’re rich and famous.
She got jailed because she’s rich and famous.
What happened to “aunt Becky”?
Do people really go to federal prison for 14 day sentences?
Well now she is truly a Gallager
One day this will all be recounted in the Felicity Huffman Story. 14 days of sheer hell on the rock...or somewhere.
Wonder if it was part of a plea deal? She goes to federal prison for a couple of weeks so she can pitch a new series: “Real Women of Club Fed”.
Yet no head of a university has been charged or arrested or is going to jail for taking in millions in bribes from “donors” who just happens to have kids who get accepted shortly after the donation.
Exactly. I could probably come up with a million or more people that should be incarcerated before Felicity Huffman including the majority of local, state and federal officials.
Aren’t the officials at those schools somehow responsible for taking the bribes or have I missed that part?
“In addition to serving 14 days in prison, Huffman also received one year of probation, was ordered to perform 250 hours of community service and pay a $30,000 fine”
In the meantime, the worst female criminal since Ethel Rosenberg, Hillary Clinton, is free as a bird ruining pantsuits,table cloths, curtains and eyeballs. Nice justice system we got here.
A lot of upper class swells serve cushy sentences at Allenwood Prison, here in North Central Pennsyltucky. Ironic that not many miles away is Lewisburg Federal Prison, where run of the mill perps do hard time.
Please don't remind me. Bringing them to trial and punishment on this earthly plane is an obsession I've had since the earliest Bill & Hillary days. I conquer it sometimes but then it returns.
I honestly struggle with that as one of my questions the nature of God. I know God is all good. I believe in Him and thank Him for my precious wife and the many good things (including Free Republic and Donald Trump).
Why He remains apparently remote to allow free will by evil ones to overwhelm innocent victims, I cannot understand. C.S. Lewis and many others have offered explanations I have heard. I read Bible commentaries daily. A religious counsel I had ended with "We have finite minds which cannot grasp and understand God's infinite intelligence so we cannot know."
A Jewish saying: "In this world there are no answers. In the World To Come there are no questions."
Here’s some information on the prison she’s in:
On one hand its funny when a celebrity goes to jail but on the other this hardly seems like something worthy of Jail time.
