Felicity Huffman PICTURED: Disgraced actress keeps low profile in LA following her guilty plea in college admissions bribery scandal

It’s been a miserable time for Felicity Huffman, but she’s keeping grace under pressure as she awaits her prison sentencing.

Huffman, 56, was snapped taking a walk in Los Angeles Thursday, keeping a low-profile on the daytime outing less than three weeks after she entered a guilty plea to mail fraud and honest services mail fraud charges in the college admissions bribery scandal she’s been linked to along with Full House alum Lori Loughlin.

On Thursday, Huffman wore a button-up striped shirt with baggy black slacks, black shoes, a black cap and brown aviator glasses with earrings.

The Oscar-nominated Transamerica actress, who is mother to daughters Sofia, 18, and Georgia, 17, with husband William H. Macy, 69, admitted to shelling out $15,000 for an proctor to correct wrong answers on Sofia’s SATs.

The Desperate Housewives star routed the payment though an admissions official named William Singer via his nonprofit Key Worldwide Foundation; prosecutors said the aforementioned foundation was set up as a front to accept payoffs.

In her admission to the court, Huffman acknowledged that the scam required changing the location where Sofia Grace was taking her test, as she used a neuropsychologist to write a note in support of the change.

She told the judge that the location change was done without the fraud in mind, and that neither the neuropsychologist or her daughter were aware of her machinations.

Huffman was seen out a day after her husband Macy, who plays Frank Gallagher on Showtime’s Shameless, was seen in Los Angeles with a pair of mylar balloons that read the phrases, ‘Congrats Grad!’ and ‘You Did It!’ as Sofia Grace graduates from high school.

Entertainment Tonight reported Thursday that Sofia Grace is going to take a break and not enroll in college immediately in the wake of her mother’s scandal.

A source told the outlet that the Sofia and Georgia ‘are doing well and have tried to keep their routines’ as they support their mother throughout the troubled time.

‘They are definitely planning a lot of quality family time,’ the source added. ‘The girls are very close to their mom and dad and have been sympathetic throughout. They will do anything they can to be there for their mother.’

The source told ET that ‘while William and Felicity have been through a lot, they are coming to terms with their situation and are dedicated to picking up the pieces and putting their family life back together.’

‘Felicity’s friends and fans are proud of how brave and honest she’s been. She’s been as transparent as possible and knows she made a mistake.’

A separate insider told ET that Huffman, who is free on $250,000 bond after her March arrest, ‘worries non-stop because she knows she has made the worst mistake of her life.’ (Macy was not charged in connection with the scandal.)

Huffman has worked out a deal with prosecutors in which she will not appeal a sentence spanning 20 years or less, while they will likely recommend a sentence spanning four to 10 months.
