BREAKING: Actress Felicity Huffman Released From Prison Early
Felicity Huffman was just released from federal prison. Huffman served 12 days of her 14-day sentence at the facility in Dublin, California.
It is a normal policy for inmates who are set to be released on weekends to be released early, according to NBC News. Huffman’s prison sentence is tied to the nation’s largest college admissions scandal.
Huffman confessed to paying an admissions consultant $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter's (Sophia) SAT scores. Back in September, the former "Desperate Housewives" actress was sentenced to 14 days in prison.
During her sentencing last month, Huffman acknowledged the severity of the crime.
"I take full responsibility for my actions. I will deserve whatever punishment you give me," Huffman said inside the Boston courtroom.
Felicity will be released from prison on Sunday. Her sentencing also included a $30,000 fine, one year of supervised probation, and 250 hours of community service.
Felicity's husband, William H. Macy, and the couple's daughter, Sophia, visited the prison last weekend. Huffman reported to the facility on October 16 after she pled guilty for her involvement in the nation's largest college admissions scandal. We have photos of their visit here.
Meanwhile, actress Lori Loughlin is now facing additional charges for her involvement in the scandal. Loughlin could face harsher sentencing if her case goes to a full trial, according to experts.
