Felicity Huffman is a no cost lady right after spending a grueling week and a half behind bars!
According to reports, the Desperate Housewives alum was released from the Federal Correctional Institution Dublin on Friday, October 25 — a mere 10 days right after starting her sentence on October 15.
As you may possibly have calculated, the actress was released early from her 14 day prison sentence. That is not a celeb perk: apparently, if an inmate’s release date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal vacation, the Bureau of Prisons are permitted to release the inmate on the final preceding weekday.
This is generally regular, unless it is needed to detain the inmate for one more jurisdiction in search of custody beneath a detainer or one more crucial explanation. But, as we reported, Felicity was an exemplary inmate, so it is no surprise she was treated to an early release.

Definitely, the 56-year-old has been cooperative from the start out of this complete scandal, which saw her pleading guilty to her involvement in the nationwide college admissions scheme more than 5 months ago. Of the dozens of parents accused of illegally paying admissions consultants to assure their children’s acceptance into elite universities, William H. Macy’s wife was the very first to commence her prison sentence.
Huffman told the judge she has taken “full responsibility” for paying $15,000 to William “Rick” Singer so a SAT proctor could repair her daughter’s exam, writing in a letter:
“In my desperation to be a great mother I talked myself into believing that all I was performing was providing my daughter a fair shot. I see the irony in that statement now mainly because what I have accomplished is the opposite of fair. I have broken the law, deceived the educational neighborhood, betrayed my daughter, and failed my family… As painful as this has been, I am genuinely grateful for the lessons I have discovered and for chance to alter and reside extra honestly. I am now focusing on repairing my connection with my daughter, my family members and creating amends to my neighborhood.”
Let the redemption arc commence!
Of course, Huff’s not accomplished with her sentence however: she’s now anticipated to comprehensive 250 hours of neighborhood service, serve one particular year of supervised release, and spend a $30,000 fine.
Meanwhile, fellow celeb parent Lori Loughlin awaits trial for her personal alleged involvement in the nationwide scheme.
It was mentioned the Fuller Property star and her husband Mossimo Giannulli could possibly get a plea deal due to Huffman’s light sentence — but we have a feeling Aunt Becky will be spending longer than a fortnight in the slammer.
