Federal Prosecutors Want Felicity Huffman To Serve Time In Jail

Prosecutors are calling for actress Felicity Huffman to serve a full month in jail for the college admissions scandal, and pay a $20,000 fine.

Huffman pleaded guilty to her charges and issued a public apology, unlike fellow actress Lori Loughlin, who's also facing charges.

Sources say that Huffman has been hoping for probation, but that seems very unlikely. Federal prosecutors say her conduct was "deliberate and manifestly criminal."

"In the context of this case, neither probation nor home confinement (in a large home in the Hollywood Hills with an infinity pool) would constitute meaningful punishment or deter others from committing similar crimes," the prosecutors wrote to the court.

“Huffman's efforts weren't driven by need or desperation, but by a sense of entitlement, or at least moral cluelessness, facilitated by wealth and insularity."

When Huffman pleaded guilty earlier this year, it was recommended that she serve 4 months in jail.

Her sentencing is taking place in Boston this Friday.
