Felicity Huffman will spend the next 2 weeks in prison as her punishment for paying a middle man to get her daughter into a prestigious college.
The Desperate Housewives actress pleaded guilty in May to a single charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud.
The prosecutor went easy on her because she quickly accepted responsibility for her white collar crime.
Huffman, 56, tearfully apologized to a federal judge in a packed courtroom in Boston on Friday, Sept. 13.
In addition to spending 14 days behind bars with hardened criminals, the judge fined her $30,000 and said she would be on supervised probation for one year.
Prosecutors had recommended one month in prison, 12 years of supervised probation, and a $20,000 fine, Yahoo News reports.
