Actress Felicity Huffman is being sentenced to two weeks in prison and community service for her role in the college admissions scandal. The Desperate Housewives star pled guilty to a count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud in May. She admitted to paying 15-thousand-dollars so her daughter could cheat on the SAT test. She is the first of about three dozen wealthy parents charged to be sentenced. Prosecutors recommended a sentence of one month, saying imprisonment was the only way to send the proper message.
