Felicity Huffman is already a free woman.
The “Desperate Housewives” actress who admitted paying $15,000 to rig her daughter’s SAT score in the college admissions bribery scandal was released from her federal prison in Northern California on Friday.
She was expected to complete her 14-day sentence on Sunday but got bounced early under a policy that allows inmates to leave ahead of schedule if their release day is on a weekend or legal holiday, prison officials said in a statement to the Daily News.
The Oscar nominee started her prison term at the low-security correctional facility in Dublin, Calif., east of San Francisco, on Oct. 15.

“I can promise you that in the months and years to come that I will try and live a more honest life, serve as a better role model for my daughters and family and continue to contribute my time and energies wherever I am needed,” Huffman said.
Huffman was the first to be sentenced in the group of parents who took early plea deals in the case.
