American actress Felicity Huffman faces jail time for wanting to enroll her daughter in a reputable university through fraud. But her prison is not the same as a prison where she receives less for her actions.
In March of this year, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation revealed that several celebrities and wealthy parents wanted to enroll their children in reputable universities through fraud. The prisoners were also actresses Lori Loughlin from the Full House series and Felicity huffman from the Disappointed Housewives series.
Felicity began her 14-day sentence yesterday, but as many expected, her time in prison will be more like a vacation.
Comfortable prison with a slight sense of punishment
His attorneys tried his sentence in the California Federal Correctional Institution, which has minimal security, and Forbes classified its two "most comfortable prisons in the country" two years ago.
Her 14 days will be spent in the company of non-aggressive prisoners, and she will have at her disposal services such as those released, such as solarium and hairdresser. She will be able to visit the library, recreate and maintain hobbies such as knitting, crochet and drawing. She can watch television until 8:45 pm on weekdays and 10:45 pm on weekends.
To have at least a small sense of lock, she will wear a prison uniform, her bed will need to be laid at 6:30 am on weekdays and at 10:00 am on weekends. The bedding should be accurate and according to the rules followed by sweeping the room. If the 56-year-old star fails to fulfill her role in an exemplary manner, it will result in a penalty.

Lori still awaits your sentence
She will return home after two weeks, where she will still be in control as a one-year suspended sentence will begin. In addition, she will have to serve another 250 hours of community service and pay $ 30,000 in fines.
His colleague Lori, who has pleaded not guilty to Felicity so far, is still awaiting sentencing. They predict that hers will be much larger than Felicity's, as Lori is much more involved in enrolling her daughters. To William Singer, the lead organizer of the coup, paid half a million dollars for the registration of both daughters, and Felicity "only" paid $ 15,000.
Singer corrected for Huffman's daughter the results of standard tests conducted by American high school students with the ambition to enroll in universities and paid for their late repairs. He arranged for Lori's daughters to enroll at the University of Southern California as talented rowers, though they had never had a happy hand before.
In the years of enrollment, the children of the rich earned 25 million
Singer offered his services to the rich across the United States. With their money, he bribed university coaches and other staff and provided favorable results on the entrance tests. He has worked with police since last year, secretly filming his clients in trade deals, so police and prosecutors had enough evidence in March this year for a major arrest campaign. The operation, called Operation Varsity Blues, probably after the 1999 movie, arrested more than 30 people.
Singer is expected to raise $ 25 million over the years of successful enrollment of wealthy children at universities such as Yale, Georgetown and Harvard.
