In addition to four months in prison, prosecutors recommended Huffman pay a $20,000 fine. She will be sentenced on Sept. 13.
On March 12, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Massachusetts announced it had charged 50 people, including Huffman and Lori Loughlin, in the cheating scandal. The two actresses, along with coaches, admissions counselors, parents, and Loughlin’s husband, fashion designer J. Mossimo Giannulli, were accused of such alleged crimes as falsifying SAT scores and lying about the athletic skills of their children.
In April, Huffman agreed to plead guilty, saying, “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions.”

Huffman did not comment to reporters while leaving the courthouse. Attorneys for Huffman have not returned PEOPLE’s calls for comment.
