The former Emmy-winner, 56, pleaded guilty in May for conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest mail fraud. She won outstanding lead actress in a comedy series in 2005 for "Desperate Housewives."

“I accept the court’s decision today without reservation,” Huffman said in a statement. “I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. 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.”
Huffman must self-report to a facility chosen by the federal Bureau of Prisons on Oct. 25.
