Felicity Huffman of “Desperate Housewives” fame has officially completed her full sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal.
A representative for Huffman confirmed to People Magazine that the 57 year-old actress completed her full sentence on Saturday. Back in May of 2019, she pled guilty to paying $15,000 to disgraced admissions consultant Rick Singer to have a proctor change her daughter Sophia’s answers after she took the SAT test.
In October of last year, Huffman served 11 days of her 14-day prison sentence. She was also sentenced by a judge to 250 hours of community service and was on supervised release for one year.
Though Huffman has been staying out of the public eye since the college admissions scandal broke, sources say that she is hoping to launch her comeback in Hollywood “early next year.”
“Like everyone else, Felicity is staying home with her family and quarantining,” a source said back in April. “She continues to be very involved with the charities involving prison reform and The Teen Project. Once COVID settles, and as she has said in the past, she will continue the work past the completion of her community service hours. Felicity is also hopeful that she’ll be able to return to acting early next year.”
Huffman completed at least some of her community service hours at The Teen Project, which helps at-risk homeless and sex trafficked young women. She had previously volunteered at the organization with her 17-year-old daughter, Georgia.
“For the last two years, Felicity and younger daughter Georgia have been going to The Teen Project two to three times a week and tutoring young high school girls to help them get their GED,” another source said. “These are girls who are from at-risk populations, who have been on the streets, human trafficked or suffered addiction.”
“The work that she’ll be doing at The Teen Project is impactful and significantly helping the young girls,” the source continued. “It is very meaningful for Felicity.”

This comes as former “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin is preparing to serve two months in prison for her role in the scandal. She plead guilty earlier this year to paying $500,000 in bribe money to have her two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.
Loughlin must now serve two months in jail, pay a $150,000 fine and complete 150 hours of community service.
