Felicity Huffman has been sentenced for the college admissions scandal

The college admissions scandal came to a head this weekend as actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced to jail time for her involvement.

Huffman, who was one of the parents caught bribing school officials to get their children into top colleges, allegedly facilitated where and when one of their daughters would take an SAT which would then be falsified, sending a $15,000 wire payment to a charity in payment.

The 56-year-old has been sentenced to 14 days in prison after she pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud earlier this year.

Lori Loughlin, another actress involved is yet to be sentenced.
