WHAT THE PROSECUTORS WANT

The prosecutors in Felicity's case recommended to the judge that she should face a month of jail time and then twelve months of supervised release. They also want her to be fined $20,000 for her part in the fraud. They will wait till Friday to see if their recommendations are followed.

FELICITY'S LETTER TO THE JUDGE

Felicity asked the judge, through her attorney, to be served a one-year probation and community service sentence. She also wrote an emotional letter to the judge, explaining that she got involved in the admission scheme only as a result of her desperation to be a good mother.

In the letter, the actress allegedly admitted that there was no justification for her actions and took responsibility for them. She is also willing to accept whatever punishment the Court administers.

The actress also narrated how she came to be involved with the leader of the fraud, Rick Singer and revealed that her oldest daughter, Sophia, had been diagnosed with learning disabilities.

This fact and recommendations from various experts drove Felicity to want to influence Sophia's SAT scores.

FELICITY WANTS TO REPAIR HER BROKEN RELATIONSHIP WITH DAUGHTERS

The 56-year-old actress does have much more to work on if she is to repair the damage done to her family, especially her relationship with her daughters in the aftermath of the scandal.

Her husband, William H. Macy, also an actor, wrote a letter to the judge (he is one of her 27 dearest friends who did), and explained that his wife is trying to rebuild her relationship with daughters, Sophia and Georgia.

That relationship took a downward spiral in March when the scandal became public knowledge.
