Felicity Huffman has turned herself in to begin serving a 14-day sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, CA, (just outside of San Francisco).
For her role in the college admissions bribery scandal, she received a two week sentence, a $30k fine, one year of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.
Prosecutors initially, privately demanded one year in jail, and then publicly reduced their recommendation to 4 months behind bars, but ultimately reduced it to 1 month. But, the judge scoffed at the prosecutors’ request … saying the case amounted to a bunch of nothing because the college admissions system was already broken.
What helped Felicity … the judge said she had “near immediate acceptance of responsibility” for her crime, and she paid one of the smallest bribes. Felicity in court apologized in court … adding, “I have inflicted more damage (on her daughter) than I could’ve ever imagined.”
TMZ also obtained the prison menu (because that’s what we’re REALLY interested in)…
Today, it’s a chicken patty, steamed rice, beans, fruit and a drink for lunch. Tonight, Felicity will eat pepper steak or lentils, steamed rice, green beans and whole wheat bread. Bon appétit!
