On Friday morning, former "Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman was granted early release from a federal prison in Dublin, California. For the past 11 days, the actress has been serving time for her part in the ongoing college admissions scandal, which included paying Rick Singer $15,000 to change her daughter's SAT scores.

According to NBC News, Huffman, 56, began serving her 14-day sentence at the Federal Correctional Institution on Oct. 15. The "Transamerica" actress was set to be released from the low-security all-female prison on Sunday, according to prison records, but was granted early release.

The reason behind her early release is reportedly due to a policy that states that inmates who are scheduled to be released on a weekend can leave the Friday before, as stated by a prison official.

Last month, Huffman, along with her husband William H. Macy, was also ordered to pay a fine of $30,000 and ordered to complete 250 hours of community service. Per NBC, Huffman has already paid the aforementioned fine. 

Huffman was not the only celebrity to face legal troubles resulting from the admissions scandal, which was also called "Operation Varsity Blues." "Fuller House" actress Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have also found themselves involved in it, as they allegedly paid $500,000 so that their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose could attend the University of Southern California.

Loughlin and Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering and mail fraud, but have now each been hit with an additional charge of conspiracy to commit federal programs bribery.
