WATCH: Felicity Huffman Pleads Guilty - Will Serve Time in Prison

Felicity Huffman will be sentenced to at least four months in prison after entering a guilty plea to a single charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

The actress appeared without makeup and emotionless in a Boston courtroom as she entered her plea in the Operation Varsity Blues case, two moths after being indicted along with 32 other parents.   

Prosecutors with the US Attorney's office then recommended that Huffman serve a sentence of four months in prison, followed by a full year of supervised release.

In addition, lawyers with the US Attorney's office asked the judge to fine Huffman $20,000 for making a $15,000 payment to facilitate a proctor editing the answers on her daughter's SAT test.

Huffman admitted to paying $15,000 to a fake charity to facilitate cheating on her daughter Sofia's SATs in April.

Soon after the statement broke, the actress released a statement saying she was 'ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community.'

The Emmy-winning actress also stated: 'My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her.'
