(Prosecutors requested Huffman serve one month of jail time, Huffman’s lawyers requested one year of probation and community service.)

“I think the 14 days will do nothing more than to ensure that the conduct be punished beyond the conviction.

Oscar-nominated actress and former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days behind bars for her personal role in the largest known college admissions scandal in US history.

And because Huffman gave up her rights to appeal the sentence when she entered her guilty plea, the judge’s decision is final. The next step for Huffman is serving her jail sentence, which she has to begin within the next 60 days.

“Typically there will be a surrender date to when she has to turn herself in. From there she will turn herself in and go about her sentence,” says Tooson. “Once again, 14 days – not that we’re making a mountain of a molehill – but I think that is a very reasonable outcome for what could have transpired.”

He adds that Huffman will learn exactly how many days she’ll be serving — whether the full 14 or more likely 12 — when she surrenders to authorities. “At the time she turns herself in and she is processed, there will be a release date that is calculated,” says Tooson.
