As RadarOnline.com readers know, Sophia’s big break comes three months after her famous mom, 57, was released from prison. The Desperate Housewives alum sentenced to 14 days behind bars for paying $15,000 to rig her daughter’s university entrance exams. She was also ordered to pay a $30,000 fine and serve 250 hours of community service.
“I broke the law. I have admitted that, and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period,” Felicity told the court in September 2019.
Her husband, actor William H. Macy, gave a personalized letter to the judge during the case. In it, he explained that his wife was not a criminal but was only trying to help their daughters have a better future. Still, after the girls (Sophia and Georgia Macy) learned of the scam, their relationship with Felicity “exploded.”
