Her husband, actor William H. Macy, was not charged — although each he and former solid member Eva Longoria wrote letters in help of Huffman.
In a letter submitted to the decide final week, the 56-year-old actress herself stated she discovered motherhood “bewildering,” and was “haunted” by her determination to enlist Singer.
“In my desperation to be a good mother I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot,” she wrote.

Her sentencing is scheduled for two:30 p.m.
