Felicity Huffman is now the first sentenced in a wide-ranging U.S. college admissions cheating scandal.
She was given a 14-day prison term on Friday and made a somber apology in federal court.
The actress and mother was paying to rig her daughter’s entrance exam, says Reuters.
She must pay a $30,000 fine, undergo a year of supervised release and complete 250 hours of community service.
Huffman is 1 of 51 wealthy parents who used bribery and fraud to get their children into prominent U.S. universities.
