Actress Felicity Huffman arrived Monday in Boston court, where she is expected to plead guilty in a national college cheating scandal.
The former “Desperate Housewives” TV star entered the courthouse holding hands with her brother, Moore Huffman Jr., around 12:45 p.m., or about two hours ahead of her hearing. The actress’ husband, actor William H. Macy, was not present.
Prosecutors are seeking the lower end of the sentencing spectrum for the actress: four to 10 months behind bars, law enforcement sources told The Post.
She is accused of paying $15,000 to pull strings to boost her daughter’s SAT score.
Huffman had faced up to 20 years without the plea deal.
Prosecutors also are seeking a $20,000 fine and 12 months’ supervised release in the case.
She is one of a slew of wealthy parents accused of cheating the system to get their already privileged kids into top schools.
Others who have been accused include “Full House” star Lori Loughlin, who has pleaded not guilty.
