[ # ] Felicity Huffman sentenced to 14 whole days
September 13th, 2019 under Desperate Housewives


Ever since Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty for paying to get her daughter a better SAT score, we have wondered what her sentence would be for her part in the college admission scandal. Today, she found her fate with her husband William H. Macy nearby in the courtroom.

According to Reuters, U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani sentenced her to 14 days in prison, a $300,000 fine, one year supervised release and 250 hours of community service. Prosecutors were recommending she get 30 days.

While she and the other parents involved in the scandal are probably pleased with her just doing two weeks, a lot of other people are not going to be. Why does a rich white actress just get such a short sentence when African-American women are sentenced for years for lying about their address to get their children into better public schools. Justice is not color blind.

I am sure Lori Loughlin is breathing a sigh of relief today over the sentencing, but I don’t think she should be. There are so many differences. Huffman pled guilty, only did the SATs for one daughter and was very remorseful. Loughlin pled not guilty, used the money to get both daughters into USC and we have not seen her be remorseful. Plus, if there is a big uproar over Huffman’s sentence, the judge might have to make an example of all of the parents. Huffman was the first one to be sentenced.

She has six weeks to turn herself in for her sentence.
