'Desperate Housewives' star Felicity Huffman reported to prison on Tuesday to begin servining the 14-day sentence she received for her role in a college bribery scandal. As Breitbart reports:

Actress Felicity Huffman has reported to a Northern California prison on Tuesday to start serving her 14-day jail sentence after pleading guilty to her participation in the college admissions scandal, according to reports.

ABC News reported that the Desperate Housewives star is serving her sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, located about 25 miles southeast of Oakland.

Federal court Judge Indira Talwani sentenced Huffman last month after the actress pleaded guilty earlier this year to a charge of conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. In addition to two weeks in jail, Huffman was also sentenced to a year of supervised release and was ordered to perform 250 hours of community service.

The Oscar-nominated Transamerica actress was also ordered to pay a fine of $20,000.

Huffman was accused of paying off an SAT proctor in exchange for correcting her daughter's answers on the SAT exam.
