Actress Felicity Huffman enters federal prison to start her 14-day sentence for role in college admissions scandal

Felicity Huffman reported Tuesday to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, which is about 40 miles east of San Francisco, to serve her sentence in massive college admissions scandal that rocked elite universities around the U.S.

Huffman, a one-time Oscar nominee and the wife of actor William H. Macy, will also have to pay a fine of $30,000 and perform 250 hours of community service under the sentence handed down last month.

The 56-year-old actress admitted to paying for someone to proctor and correct her daughter’s college board test, which resulted in the score jumping 400 points above her PSAT performance to 1420 out of a possible 1600.

In prison, she will have the number 77806-112, and she is expected to serve the full 14 days because there is no time off for good behavior in the federal system for sentences less than a year.
