BOSTON (WTHR) — Prosecutors want actress Felicity Huffman to spend a month in jail for her part in the college admissions scandal.

NBC News reports that prosecutors want Huffman to also pay a $20,000 fine and spend a year on supervised release.

Huffman pleaded guilty earlier this year to committing mail fraud and honest services fraud.

The prosecutor's filing said Huffman's conduct was "deliberate and manifestly criminal."

They also said that jail was needed because home detention in a Beverly Hills house with an infinity pool is no punishment.

The FBI's investigation also led to charges againt "Full House" actress Lori Loughlin, who has pleaded not guilty.
