Actress Felicity Huffman was released from a federal prison right after serving 11 days of her 14 day sentence for her function in the U.S. college admissions scandal.
The former ‘Desperate Housewives’ star was sentenced to 14 days behind bars in September right after pleading guilty to charges of bribing education officials in a desperate try to get her daughter into an elite university, WENN.com reports.
The disgraced actress reported to the low-safety all-women’s Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California to commence her punishment on October 15, but she was permitted to stroll absolutely free on Friday, Oct. 25, right after just 11 days behind bars, reports NBC News.
As element of her sentence, which was handed down in a federal courtroom in Boston, Massachusetts, she will also have to spend a $30,000 fine and full 250 hours of neighborhood service.
In addition, the 56-year-old will invest the subsequent year on probation.
Huffman was a single of 30 properly-to-do parents, such as ‘Fuller House’ star Lori Loughlin, to be charged with cheating top rated schools to favor their privileged youngsters.
Huffman was offered a lenient sentence mainly because she accepted duty and threw herself on the mercy of the court.
Loughlin has pleaded not guilty and she was hit with more felony charges this week. A judge is anticipated to throw the book at Loughlin when she is sentenced.
