Will Felicity Huffman Get Prison Time for College Admissions Scandal?

Playing Felicity Huffman Fears Worst in Sentencing for College Admissions Scandal

Actress Felicity Huffman has arrived in Boston with her husband, William H. Macy, and she is prepared for the worst. 

The 56-year-old actress will be sentenced Friday for her role in the college admissions cheating scandal. Prosecutors have recommended a month in federal prison. 

"They throw you out in the compound and essentially say, ‘Good luck!’ Some inmates may be off put by her, may be off put by her celebrity, by her wealth, and may look to create trouble and drama for her. You can expect both praise and some hatred," prison expert Justin Paperny told Inside Edition. 

If she does get time, she may serve her sentence Victorville Federal Prison Camp in San Bernardino, California. 

“Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller served eight months there for bankruptcy fraud and told Inside Edition her celebrity made her a target. 

“They come to your locker they take a can of red soda pop, shake it up and spray it all over your clothes,” she said. 

There's already a Lifetime movie inspired by the college admissions scandal scheduled to premiere next month with characters based on Huffman and Lori Loughlin, who denies any part in the scheme. 

Huffman’s sentencing comes as reality star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was released from federal prison Thursday after serving eight months for tax evasion.

Photos published by Radar show jacked biceps, suggesting he spent much of his time behind bars working out. 

His “Jersey Shore” castmates threw him a release party. His wife, Lauren, says they plan to start a family as soon as possible. 

Before he began his sentence, Sorrentino was given advice by his Uncle Nino on “Jersey Shore” that Huffman could use too. 

“Don't stare nobody in the eyes. They take that as an insult,” Nino said.
