The prosecution's decision to ask for four to 10 months has nothing to do with Huffman's public apology, said the source.
A plea agreement indicates that prosecutors recommend imprisonment in the "lower end" of the sentencing range, a $ 20,000 penalty and 12 months of supervised release. The prosecutors recommend a set of sentences for Huffman and the witnesses who sinned, from 1

Huffman was court on May 21
What was he talking about?
Huffman agrees to plead guilty to paying $ 15,000 in a fake charity associated with Rick Singer to speed up cheating for his daughter in the SATs. The singer ran a college prep business, and helped rich cheat parents on the standard tests for their children. He also feeds college coaches to designate children with recruited athletes, replacing their entry path, a criminal complaint says.
Huffman and Singer exchanged emails about how to get extra time with his daughter's SAT. They arranged for Huffman's son to pick up the SAT at a location controlled by an overseer, the complainant said. The daughter earned a score of 1420 from a maximum of 1600 on the SAT, about 400 points on her initial SAT exam one year earlier.
She apologized to her daughter
gave an apology and took responsibility for her actions, saying that her daughter did not know the payment. He said he had betrayed his daughter and did not make any reason for breaking the law.
