The former Felicity Huffman served 11 days of a 14 year sentence back in 2019 for her role in the infamous college admissions scandal.

“I walk into the room with it. I did it. It’s black and white,” Huffman, 61, told The Guardian.

“I feel like I’m well,” Huffman says after undergoing the prison sentence.

Fox News reported that Huffman went to prison for nearly two weeks after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. This came after she bribed a college prep expert $15,000 to alter her daughter’s SAT scores to get her into college. Huffman was ordered to pay $30,000 in fines and complete 250 hours of community service.

Five years later, Huffman believes her Hollywood career has suffered because of the scandal.

“I did a pilot for ABC recently that didn’t get picked up. It’s been hard,” she said. “Sort of like your old life died and you died with it.”

“I’m not in any way whitewashing what I did but some people have been kind and compassionate,” she added. “Others have not.”

“I’m lucky enough to have a family and love and means, so I had a place to land,” she admitted.

“Huffman previously opened up about why she chose to take part in this scandal in the first place back in December.
