According to court documents, Huffman was arrested for making “a purported charitable contribution of $15,000 … to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme on behalf of [Sophia].”

The actress pleaded guilty to the charges against her last month, and her sentencing will take place on September 13. Prosecutors are seeking four to 10 months behind bars, but the judge could decide otherwise.
