Felicity Huffman is making history today as the first person to be sentenced for her role in the college admissions scandal. In case you forgot, the Oscar nominee paid $15 thousand dollars to boost the SAT scores of he her daughter, Sophia. She took a deal where she pleaded guilty to committing mail fraud and honest services fraud.
Federal prosecutors would like to see Felicity serve a month in prison and pay a $20-thousand dollar fine. As for the probation officials, they’re not recommending a sentence because there’s no victim and no actual or intended loss.
On the flipside, if Huffman’s lawyers have their way, she’ll pay the fine and spend a year on probation and perform 250 hours of community service.
