Felicity Huffman has begun her community service after spending just 11 days in prison for her role in the college admissions scandal.

The Desperate Housewives’ 14-day sentence was last week cut short after the actress pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 (£12,100) to doctor her daughter’s university entrance exams.

As well as paying a $30,000 fine (£23,800), Felicity has been ordered by the courts to undertake 250 hours of community service, which she began in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Dressed down in a black roll neck sweater, blue jeans and black pumps, the mother-of-two headed to The Teen Project, a treatment centre hoping rehabilitate young women at risk of sex trafficking and homelessness.

Carrying a large plastic tub holding cake tins, Felicity appeared to be in a lowkey and subdued mood, entering and leaving the rehab centre on her own.

The 56-year-old actress has demonstrated this same repentant attitude ever since the scandal, nicknamed Operation Varsity Blues, shocked the world back in March.

Over 50 people, including parents and athletic coaches, were charged for their involvement in the illegal scheme, which saw students get accepted into university through doctored photos, altered tests and forged documents.

But while Felicity plead to the mail fraud charges levied against her, it is the other famous name on the list, actress Lori Loughlin, who may end up serving a considerably longer sentence for her part in the scandal.

The Full House star is accused of paying $500,000 (£409,000) to get both of her daughters accepted to university on rowing scholarships, despite neither of the girls having ever played the sport.

Lori and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, have pleaded not guilty to every charge given to them, last month being slapped with an additional bribery charge.

If found guilty, Lori could serve up to 50 years in jail, with her trial expected to play out in the coming months.
