After 11 days in prison, actress Felicity Huffman has been released, about three days before completing her sentence.

She left Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California. It's a low-security site with about 1,200 inmates. Huffman was also told to pay a $30,000 fine and perform community service -- 250 hours of it, per U.S. District Judge Indira Talwani.

Was Scheduled To Serve Two Weeks

Huffman was sentenced to 14 days in prison for her part in the huge college admissions scam that rocked Hollywood earlier this year.

Though she was supposed to be released on Sunday, Huffman she left Friday, which is customary for inmates who are scheduled to be released on weekends.

Joins Others In College Scam

Huffman admitted paying thousands to help fix her daughter's college entrance exam in the "Operation Varsity Blues" federal probe. The final score was 1420, 400 points more than her daughter's PSAT score.

Actress Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli have also been charged in the scandal along with nearly 50 other parents.

Martha Stewart Weighs In

Twitter

Huffman was seen earlier this week wearing her prison outfit, black shoes, glasses and a white hat.

Martha Stewart, a former inmate herself, commented on Huffman's look, saying, “Well, she should style her outfit a little bit more. She looked pretty schlumpy.”
