The conviction of Felicity Huffman gives prosecutors a significant benefit by seeking imprisonment for other historically accused parents.
Felicity Huffman was not received warmly in the Emmys.
The award-winning Emmy actress, sentenced to 14 days in jail for her involvement in the college admissions scandal, was murdered at the Primetime Emmy Awards at the Microsoft Theater Sunday in Los Angeles.
After moderating RuPaul's "RuPaul's Drag Race" and winning a statuette for the "Outstanding Competition" program, comedian Thomas Lennon, who made comments all night, gave one Fire off.
"Producers have asked me to give a special thank you to one of our former leading ladies watching out of prison tonight," Lennon said with a grin as the star-studded audience burst into laughter. "Hopefully these two weeks will pass quickly, keep your chin up."

Although Lennon Huffman was not named, the list of Emmy-winning actresses sentenced to a two-week jail term is quite short, and social media users have the goal of the joke right away recognized.
"I yell at this commentator who is dragging Felicity Huffman & # 39; … to all the actresses watching out of jail, these two weeks are flying by," @TanujaAnne tweeted while @Jeffurry312 added that Lennon's "Felicity Huffman joke was murderous".
