"Desperate Housewives" actress Felicity Huffman could serve as many as 10 months in prison for illegally paying thousands of dollars to get her daughter into college.

CNN reported Tuesday that prosecutors will seek a sentence of anywhere from four to 10 months in the wake of Huffman's guilty plea. She is accused of paying a fake charity $15,000 to help her daughter cheat on the SATs. Huffman's daughter was unaware of the scam, which involved paying off a test site administrator to give the teenager additional time to do her test.

Huffman and 12 other prominent parents agreed last week to plead guilty to charges they paid bribes.

Also arrested as part of the alleged scheme was "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband Mossimo Giannulli. They are accused of paying $500,000 to get their two daughters accepted into the University of Southern California as recruits on the crew team. Neither was a crew athlete.

The couple pleaded not guilty on Monday.
