Actress Felicity Huffman was sentenced two weeks jail time on Friday for paying bribe for her daughter’s admission to a prestigious American university. Huffman, 56, was the first parent to be sentenced among 50 people indicted in a cheating scandal to get children enrolled in top US colleges. She was pleaded guilty in May during a tearful court appearance to paying $15,000 to boost her daughter´s SAT college entrance exam score. The Oscar nominee , in a navy blue dress and cardigan, looked ashen-faced as she left the federal courthouse in Boston, Massachusetts, clutching the hand of her husband, actor William H. Macy.
