(CBS).– Felicity Huffman is scheduled to be sentenced for her role in the college admissions cheating scandal on Friday afternoon. The popular television actress has admitted to paying $15,000 in an effort to boost her eldest daughter’s SAT score.
Prosecutors have recommended that Huffman, 56, spends one month in prison. Her lawyers said she should serve a year of probation.
In 2017, prosecutors said Huffman paid the $15,000 to a foundation by William Singer, who allegedly arranged for a particular proctor to ensure her daughter scored well on the SAT. Her daughter received a score of 1420, approximately 400 points over her PSAT score from the year prior, according to the federal indictment.
In May, Huffman pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.
