On Oct. 25, former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman was released from a Dublin, California, prison after serving 14 days for her part in the ongoing college admissions scandal. The actress was given the punishment after pleading guilty to paying Rick Singer $15,000 to change her daughter's SAT scores. She was eventually granted early release, but a new report states that her short stint at the penitentiary still had quite an impact on her.

According to Page Six, the "American Crime" star was so moved by the "harsh" conditions that she witnessed behind bars that she now wants to help incarcerated women as a component of her court-ordered community service.

"Her experience is that these women are left behind," an insider revealed to the publication, adding, "They're abandoned. There's no support for them either in the institution or when they leave the institution, and that broke her heart."

Aside from Huffman's desire to help prisoners have more of a voice, she already started fulfilling her community service requirements earlier this month. On Nov. 3, she was seen leaving a facility where she is said to be working with young women who are either at-risk youth or have been sex-trafficking victims.

Huffman continues to make very different decisions than "Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin, who is another celebrity involved in the admissions scandal. Both Loughlin and her husband have been accused of paying Singer $500,000 so that their daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, could attend the University of Southern California (USC). At this time, they have each been charged with mail and wire fraud, honest services mail and wire fraud, and conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery. They have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Due to the fact that another involved parent, Toby MacFarlane, was recently ordered to serve a six-month prison sentence for his part in the scandal, which is the longest sentence to date, Loughlin is now said to be concerned about what the future could hold for her. Reportedly, she could receive a lesser sentence if she agreed to certain terms, but at this time, she is not believed to have made an effort to do so.
