WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Actress Felicity Huffman will not serve her entire 14-day prison sentence, according to news reports.
- The actress, who reported on October 15 for her 14-day prison sentence, will be released on October 27, only serving 13 days behind bars.
- The time it took for authorities to arrest Huffman at her home in March, book her and then release her after several hours will be counted as the fourteenth day of her sentence, according to TMZ.
Former “Desperate Housewives” actress Felicity Huffman will reportedly only serve 13 days behind bars, one day short of her 14-day prison sentence.
Huffman, 56, who reported on Tuesday, October 15 to start her sentence, will be released on October 27, according to PEOPLE that cited the Federal Bureau of Prisons inmate locator.
The actress, who was involved in the college admissions scandal, won’t serve the entire 14 days because of the few hours she spent behind bars after her initial arrest in March, according to TMZ. The outlet says that the time it took for law enforcers to arrest Huffman at her home, book her and then release her after several hours will be considered as the fourteenth day of her sentence.
Huffman’s husband, William H. Macy, has driven the actress to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California on Tuesday. Currently, FCI Dublin houses 1,227 inmates.
A representative of the actress released a statement upon the beginning of her sentence this week, saying, “Ms. Huffman is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions. She will begin serving the remainder of the sentence Judge Talwani imposed — one year of supervised release, with conditions including 250 hours of community service — when she is released.”
The Emmy winner will also pay a $30,000 fine in addition to her 14-day prison time, and complete 250 hours of community service working one-on-one with children.
