After the “Varsity Blues” college admission scandal in 2019, many wealthy parents were faced with criminal charges, one of the most notable names is Felicity Huffman.

Huffman plead guilty to paying $15,000 to have her daughter, Sophia Macy‘s, SAT scores altered in the hopes that a better score would get her into the college of her choice. She was then sentenced to serve a 14 day prison sentence. She is reportedly relieved but also anxious to serve her time and get this whole part of her life over with. In addition to the prison time, she was ordered to pay a $30,000 fine and complete 250 hours of community service with a year of supervised release.

Originally prosecutors were seeking a month of prison time for Huffman, but they are seeking longer sentences for other defendants — more than three years in some cases.

Sophia Macy asked her mother according to People,”Why didn’t you believe in me? Why didn’t you think I could do it on my own?” Huffman had no adequate answer to give her.

After Felicity was sentenced she expressed her remorse and apologized to her daughter in a statement. ”I can only say, I am so sorry Sophia,” part of the statement read. “I was frightened, I was stupid, and I was so wrong. I am deeply ashamed of what I’ve done.”

Felicity is set to start her sentence on Oct. 25.
