Felicity Huffman Can't Open New Credit Cards After Prison Release

By Ryan Naumann

Felicity Huffman is prohibited from opening any new credit cards or taking out loans, following her release from prison.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Huffman was not only ordered to serve a two-week prison sentence.

The judge also put restrictions of Huffman following her prison release. She will serve one-year probation after getting out. The actress will have to pay a $30,000 fine and complete 250 hours of community service.

Further, the judge notes, “You are prohibited from incurring new credit charges or opening additional lines of credit without the approval of the Probation Office while any financial obligations remain outstanding.”

Huffman will also have to share financial information with her probation officer. The judge did not order drug testing because she was “low risk”.

Last week, the actress was sentenced 14 days in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal. She had reached a plea deal with prosecutors previously.

Huffman plead guilty to one count of “Conspiracy to Commit Mail Fraud and Honest Services Mail Fraud”.


Huffman arrived in federal court Friday with husband and actor William H. Macy.

Her legal team had been hoping for a sentence of only probation. Huffman changed her plea in May, admitting to paying $15,000 to college admissions scam mastermind William “Rick” Singer.

The actress was accused of using Singer to help inflate her daughter SAT scores.

Huffman is the first of several high-profile people charged in the bribery scandal to be sentenced. Fellow actress Lori Loughlin has plead not guilty and is currently fighting her case.
