In a few short weeks, actress Felicity Huffman will go to prison to serve her sentence for the role she played in the college admissions scandal. And with every day that goes by, her husband William H. Macy gets more concerned.

“(He) continues to worry about his wife’s well-being,” a family source tells People magazine in a new interview. “He has seen firsthand how difficult this experience has been on her. He’s been extremely supportive and very protective of her all along the way.”
Earlier this month, Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison, plus a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release after pleading guilty to paying $15,000 for her daughter’s SAT test answers corrected as part of a much bigger college admissions scandal.
“The family is hanging in there, spending time together and doing their best to heal,” a source tells the magazine. “Felicity is getting everyone together, so they can spend time talking, and healing with each other.”
According to various sources, Huffman is just ready to pay her debt to society…and then move on with her life.
“The sentence Felicity received is not about a victory or a defeat,” the source says. “She is not disappointed or relieved about the outcome. She is contrite and humbled and accepts the outcome. She is resigned to the fact that she has to serve her sentence and pay her dues to society.”
