Actress Felicity Huffman was released from prison Friday after serving 11 days in federal prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.

Huffman started her 14-day sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., on Oct. 15.

In September, Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison for her role in the scandal after she pleaded guilty to fraud charges. Judge Indira Talwani sentenced her to two weeks in jail, a $30,000 fine, one year of supervised release and 250 hours of community service, as reported by the Deseret News.

Reports suggested that Huffman would leave prison early, serving only 13 days of her sentence. Huffman was reportedly not going to serve her entire sentence because she spent a few hours in jail after she was arrested for the scandal, as reported by the Deseret News.

Per NBC News, Huffman was set to be released on Sunday, which would have been the 13th day of her sentence.

“She was released Friday as is normal policy for inmates who are set to be released on weekends,” according to NBC News.

A photo of Huffman wearing her prison uniform surfaced online just days into the sentence, as reported by the Deseret News. She was seen wearing a white hat and glasses.
