FELICITY HUFFMAN: Feds Recommend 4 Months in Prison

Felicity Huffman won't spend as much time in jail as previously thought.

The U.S. Attorney has recommended that the actress be sentenced to only one month behind bars for her part in the college admissions bribery scandal. Earlier this year, prosecutors wanted her to do between four to 10 months in prison.

In court documents obtained by TMZ, prosecutors say, "Some period of incarceration is the only meaningful sanction for these crimes. Not because the defendants' relative wealth has generated public resentment, but because jail is a particularly meaningful response to this kind of offense. For wrongdoing that is predicated on wealth and rationalized by a sense of privilege, incarceration is the only leveler: in prison everyone is treated the same, dressed the same, and intermingle regardless of affluence, position or fame."

Felicity, who pled guilty to the charges earlier this year, will also be ordered to pay $20,000 in fines -- as long as a judge agrees to it.

Felicity's attorney recommended she get a year of probation, 250 hours community service and the $20,000 fine.
