“Felicity was resigned to the fact she has to pay her dues to society,” a source tells Entertainment Tonight about Huffman, who was sentenced to 14 days behind bars for her role in the college admissions scandal. “She is looking forward to putting this all behind her.”

On Tuesday (Oct. 15,) Huffman was dropped off at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California by her husband William H. Macy so she could begin to pay her dues for paying $15,000 to help get her daughter into an elite college by cheating on her SAT.

“Bill drove her there and dropped her off,” the source tells Entertainment Tonight. “Bill is supporting her and standing by her. He’s a rock and very supportive. She has a lot of family and friend support around her.”

Nevertheless, it has to be a hard pill to swallow for the actress, who still will need to serve one year of supervised release, a $30,000 fine, and 250 hours of community service working one-on-one with children.

“I accept the court’s decision today without reservation,” a statement from Huffman read soon after her sentencing. “I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period. I would like to apologize again to my daughter, my husband, my family and the educational community for my actions.”
