NEW YORK (1010 WINS) –  Actress Felicity Huffman was released from a federal prison Friday after serving 11 days for her role in a college admission scandal.

Huffman began her 14-day sentence at a prison in Dublin, California on Oct. 15 but was released early thanks to a policy for inmates set to be released on weekends.

The “Desperate Housewives” star pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to artificially raise her daughter’s college admission test scores in May.

Huffman will still be required to pay 250 hours in community service.

She paid a $30,000 fine in addition to her prison sentence.
