Felicity Huffman is breathing a sigh of relief after getting off relatively easy in the college bribery scandal, but the public thinks she received special treatment from the judge.
Moments ago, the "Desperate Housewives" star was sentenced in Boston, receiving only 14 days in custody, 250 hours community service and a $30,000 fine.
Federal prosecutors were suggesting she spend at least a month behind bars, and during the sentencing hearing made it clear she should be made an example of.
However, the judge in the case defended her ruling by explaining, "I don't think anyone wants to be going to prison, I do think this is the right sentence here ... You move forward and you can rebuild your life after this. You pay your dues."
