(Newser) – Felicity Huffman reported to prison in northern California Tuesday morning to begin serving her 14-day sentence for her role in the sweeping college admissions bribery scandal. The 56-year-old actress will be imprisoned at the low-security, all-female Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, People reports. "Ms. Huffman is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions," says her rep in a statement. "She will begin serving the remainder of the sentence Judge Talwani imposed—one year of supervised release, with conditions including 250 hours of community service—when she is released." Huffman, who paid $15,000 to have her daughter's SAT answers fixed, was also fined $30,000. As NBC News reports, there is no option for an early release for good behavior.
