The Desperate Housewives Actress Felicity Huffman was just one celebrity caught in the mix.

Just out from US Weekly magazine,

Felicity is prepared and ready to face sentencing,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “She has taken responsibility for her actions and will again express that in court today before [the judge]. She is somber and reflecting on why she did what she did.”

Huffman, 56, still wants to avoid jail if there is a chance.

“Hoping to avoid serving any time [behind] bars, Felicity believes she can be of service to the community in a work-release program in which she would voluntarily do service if not ordered to do so,” the insider adds.

She is set to be sentenced today.

Huffman was arrested in March on charges of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud. She pleaded guilty to the counts in May.

 

According to court documents, she made

“a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 … to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.” Huffman shares daughters Sophia, 19, and Georgia, 17, with husband William H. Macy.

Will let you know when the verdict comes.
