Actress Felicity Huffman walked out of federal prison on Friday after serving less than two weeks for charges springing from the college admissions scandal.

Huffman began her 14-day sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., on Oct. 15. She was released early under a prison policy that allows inmates to leave the facility if they are set to be released on weekends, according to NBC News.


Huffman will also have to pay a $30,000 fine and perform 250 hours of community service after pleading guilty to mail fraud and honest services fraud charges in May, charges that came from paying an SAT proctor to alter her daughter’s scores.

"I accept the court’s decision today without reservation," the “Desperate Housewives” actress said in a statement after her sentencing. "I have always been prepared to accept whatever punishment Judge Talwani imposed. I broke the law. I have admitted that and I pleaded guilty to this crime. There are no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period."

Huffman was one of dozens of defendants charged in the scandal, dubbed “Varsity Blues” by federal officials.

The Hill has reached out to the Federal Correctional Institution for comment.

Unlike Huffman, fellow actress Lori Loughlin is fighting the Varsity Blues charges against her. Prosecutors say the former "Full House" star could face a substantially longer sentence if she is convicted after pleading not guilty.
