Actress Felicity Huffman reports to Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin

Former 'Desperate Housewives' star sentenced to 14 days for role in college admissions scandal

The low-security federal prison for women in Dublin received a celebrity inmate on Tuesday, with actress Felicity Huffman reporting to serve her sentence for a conviction in the college admissions scandal, according to the Associated Press.

In May, Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison, a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year’s probation after pleading guilty to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter’s SAT exam answers in 2017, according to the AP.

She will be serving out her time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, a minimum-security facility for female inmates located not far from the Santa Rita Jail.

“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,” Huffman’s representative said in a statement.

Huffman, a former star of "Desperate Housewives," is an Emmy Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated actress.
