BOSTON (AP) — Federal prosecutors are asking a judge to sentence "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman to a month in jail for her role in the sweeping college admissions bribery scandal.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling's office recommended in filings Friday, Sept. 6 in Boston federal court that Huffman spend 30 days in jail because she acted "out of a sense of entitlement, or at least moral cluelessness."

Huffman's lawyers argued she should get a year of probation, 250 hours of community service and a $20,000 fine instead.

Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, also wrote letters seeking leniency.

Huffman pleaded guilty in May to fraud charges for paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter's SAT exam answers.

Huffman is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 13 in Boston federal court.
