Felicity Huffman and her apology

After getting the sentence this September, Felicity felt bad for her family. She apologized to William and her daughter Sophia.

She also said sorry to the students who toil hard day and night to get into the college. Felicity also apologized to the parents of such hardworking and diligent students who sacrificed for their kids.

Before the presiding Judge awarded the sentence to Felicity, William also wrote a letter to the Judge on behalf of his wife Felicity. He wrote:

“Felicity worried about raising our girls in Hollywood with working actors for parents, so we decided to keep them as far away from our business as possible,”

“We rarely took them to any sort of Hollywood event and tried to avoid them being photographed by the press.”

William also talked about the severe emotional impact that the scandal had on their two daughters, Sophia, 19, and Georgia, 17.

He added:

“[Sophia] still doesn’t like to sleep alone and has nightmares from FBI agents waking her that morning with guns drawn,”

Georgia started crying after seeing her mother in handcuffs. Mentioning it, William said:

“After watching the six FBI agents put her handcuffed Mom into a car and drive her away, she cried.”

He concluded the letter by praising his wife:

“If I may I’d like to tell you one more thing: every good thing in my life is because of Felicity Huffman,”

The couple has been married since 1997.
