Felicity Huffman seemed to be in good spirits since her release from prison for her role in the college admissions scandal. She's been sentenced to three weeks for community service after her prison release on October 25. The actress has been involved with her efforts to serving the non-profit organization, The Teen Project Center in Los Angeles and was seen all smiles while delivering cupcakes to the center on November 17.
Huffman was wearing a grey v-neck sweater under a black t-shirt with blue jeans and black Adidas low-top sneakers.
The Teen Project Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping serving at-risk homeless and sex trafficked young women. She was previously seen delivering the sweets to the center on November 3. She'll be seen more often before she finishes her community service duties.
Huffman Moving On From Prison
Felicity served 11 of 14 days in prison for her part in the college admissions scandal. The actress had paid for a proctor to change her daughter’s SAT scores for $15K. Felicity pleaded guilty to the charges and was subsequently sentenced to a year of probation, 250 hours of community service and to pay a $30K fine for her felony.
The actress feels like herself again after the long ordeal with the college admissions scam. She wants to move forward and get her life back on track.
Felicity Huffman Enjoys Community Service Compared to Prison
While her prison sentence was a tough lesson; Huffman clearly enjoys working with The Teen Center and has worked with them several times in the past. She has always been philanthropic and has supported dozens of charities throughout the years so she is really looking at this as a positive experience.
It's not an easy transition from prison to community service—hopefully, she has learned her lesson from this that no one should bribe a college just to get your daughter in it.
Giving Back To The Community
A source said that Huffman was fully committed to helping The Teen Center and giving back to the community. She has taken a genuine interest in young women trying to make a positive impact on their lives.
The source added that the staff at The Teen Project was apprehensive at first, but she has turned out to be a great addition.
'There was definitely apprehension that Felicity felt from the staff, because no one knew how seriously Felicity was going to take this,' the source added.
'Most people just show, do the hours, and leave. They aren’t engaged and fully present. Felicity is the opposite,' the source said.
Huffman has been married to actor William H. Macy since 1997, and they have two kids, 19 year old Sophia and 17 year old Georgia.
