Felicity Huffman was sentenced today for her role in the college admissions scandal nicknamed Operation Varsity Blues.

Initially prosecutors wanted her to serve a minimum of 4 months in jail but they backed off bigtime and ask the judge that she serve just 1 month. Her legal team was trying to get her 30 days of home confinement. Here's what the judge gave her:

  • 14 days behind bars
  • $30,000 fine
  • 1 year of supervised release
  • 250 hours of community service

And she doesn't have to begin serving her sentence today; she can start at a later date.

Is that what you expected, or not so much.

Do you think Felicity's sentence was fair?

Hardly, two weeks is nothing. She's basically getting off scot-free
