BOSTON (AP) - Actress Felicity Huffman has been sentenced to 14 days in prison for her role in the sweeping college admissions scandal .     

The ``Desperate Housewives'' star was sentenced in Boston's federal court Friday after pleading guilty in May to a single count of conspiracy and fraud.     

She was also given a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release.     

She has admitted to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter's SAT exam answers in 2017.     

Prosecutors had recommended a month in prison and a $20,000 fine.

Huffman's lawyers said she should get a year of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $20,000 fine.     

Huffman said before sentencing that ``I am deeply ashamed of what I have done. I have inflicted more damage than I could ever imagine.''     

She's the first parent to be sentenced among 34 charged in the scheme.
