Felicity Huffman Asks if She Can Sunbathe During 14 Day Sentence in Low-Security Prison

Felicity Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison last week for buying her daughter’s way into an elite college as part of the biggest college admission scam in history. On Friday, Huffman’s lawyer tried to get the judge to send her to the Federal Correctional Institution Dublin, a cushy prison in Dublin, California.

It is a “low security” institution where Huffman would spend her mere 14 days in jail with 1,235 other female inmates, about 35 miles outside of San Francisco. Where Huffman will spend her time won’t be decided until October 25. The Bureau of Prisons (BOP) has the final authority.

At the Dublin prison, Huffman will be able to sleep in until 10 am on holidays and weekends and she can even sunbathe in the California on the weekends in a shirt and shorts. On the weekends, Huffman can watch television until almost midnight and can spend a whopping $320 a week at the commissary, according to CNN.

As part of her sentence, Huffman will also have to serve one year of probation, pay a $30,000 fine and perform 250 hours of community service.

Huffman is the first of dozens of parents, coaches, test administrators and college officials that will be charged in the college admissions scam. She was charged with spending $15,000 to have the scam’s mastermind boost her daughter’s average SAT scores so she could have a chance at elite universities.

The “Desperate Housewives” actress tried to excuse her actions by claiming she committed fraud to give her daughter “a fair shot.” Being the privileged daughter of two millionaires was not enough of a “fair shot” apparently.

In a written statement released to the media, Huffman also apologized to “the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children.”

Students who do not come from a background with two millionaire parents and actually work hard in school in order to earn spots at the country’s best universities.
