Felicity Huffman, Sentenced To Two Weeks In Jail, Gets Early Release

Oct 25, 2019  •  Post A Comment

“Felicity Huffman has been released from prison after spending less than two weeks behind bars,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.

“Huffman’s scheduled release date was Sunday. She was let out early because of a Bureau of Prisons policy that allows for a Friday release in some cases if the scheduled date falls on a weekend, the spokeswoman said,” reports The New York Times.

Parker adds in THR, “The actress was sentenced to 14 days after she pleaded guilty in the nationwide college admission cheating scandal. The sentence came down in September, as she was among the first parents ensnared in FBI-dubbed operation Varsity Blues to plead guilty.

“The Oscar-nominated actress was accused of disguising a $15,000 charitable payment in the bribery scheme in order for someone to take her daughter’s SAT exam, to which she pleaded guilty in May to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.”

  1. Well isn’t that just special. They’ll probably make a big budget movie about her ordeal and redemption.

  2. She had a good lawyer who gave her the right advice. “Take the Deal”. That will also be the title of the movie.

  3. Just another example of how the idolized in Hollywood and on screen get perks never provided to others. What she was despicable, and it’s even worse that she raised a child who also didn’t stand up and do THE RIGHT THING. A parent is truly the role model and if she acts as though she is above others including the law, than it’s not surprise. This whole last year has made me take a much harder look at what these Ivy League and top notch colleges are REALLY all about!! Honesty and integrity trump societal status and money in the end! Anything that can be burned up in a fire, is worth nothing in Heaven.
