DUBLIN, Calif. (AP) - “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman reported Tuesday to a U.S. prison in California to serve a two-week sentence in a college admissions scandal, a representative said.

A brief statement Tuesday from Huffman’s publicist, the TASC Group, said that she “is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions.” A spokesman for the agency refused to be named.

A federal judge in Boston sentenced Huffman last month to 14 days in prison, a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year’s probation.

The Federal Correctional Institution, Dublin is a low-security prison for women in the San Francisco Bay Area.
