Felicity Huffman is officially serving her time for her part in the college admissions scandal. Huffman reported to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, CA on Tuesday, October 15th. She will be serving her 14 day sentence at the facility.
“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,” a representative for Huffman said in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE.
Felicity Huffman pleaded guilty back in May for her involvement with Rick Singer. She paid Singer $15,000 to have a proctor change the answers on her daughter's SAT exam. In addition to the 14 days in prison, she has to pay $30,000 in fines and serve 250 hours of community service. At the sentencing, which took place on September 13th, she was also told she will have one year of supervised release after her prison sentence was up.
Unlike fellow celebrity mom Lori Loughlin, Felicity Huffman is accepting her role in the scandal. She's admitted her guilt and is looking to serve her sentence without any additional fanfare. According to sources, she will be serving her sentence among the general population, and didn't ask for isolation.
“[She is] expecting no special treatment,” the source tells Us Weekly. “This ordeal has upended her life and, frankly, career going forward. She just wanted to serve the sentence and move on.”
The source also claims that Huffman wants to use her time in prison for good. “She wants to take the short time there to learn as much as possible about how the other inmates ended up in prison. Prison justice reform is a very important cause for Felicity. She was interviewed for placement a few weeks ago." Multiple sources claim that the experience has "humbled" Huffman, and brought her family closer.
“The family has gone through some rough patches but they’re fighting through them as best they can. They know it will take some time,” a source tells PEOPLE.
It will be interesting to see what Huffman's plans are post prison.
