This came earlier than the original ruling that Huffman will be released on Sunday, October 27, but sources share that the star's early departure is according to the set prison policy.

A U.S. Department of Justice Federal Bureau of Prisons' program statement shares that the mother-of-two was released as is done for prisoners who are set to be released on weekends. Huffman was among the high-class clientele of the now infamous admissions consultant Rick Singer.

The star's reputation took a sharp dive after reports of how she paid Singer $15,000 to have a university official change her daughter Sophia's SAT answers after she took the test. The bribery scandal caused the "Desperate Housewives" to get a sentence of 14 days in federal prison.

She was held at a low-security correctional institution for female offenders, and it is shared that the star was made to live according to the schedule set for inmates at the facility.

She started her day with a 5 a.m. wake up call every day and returned by 9 p.m. According to reports, Huffman kept to the schedule until her departure with PEOPLE recording first spotting the entertainer in her prison garb the same day before she was later seen leaving the facility with her husband, William H. Macy.

A source close to the power couple shares that Huffman is "so relieved" to be done with her prison time. Now, she plans to focus on "moving forward" with her family.

An insider exclusively told HollywoodLife that:

"Felicity still has plenty of community service to finish, and she's still on probation, but the part of her sentence that she was dreading the most is behind her."

Although the Huffmans have gone through a rough patch and know it will take some time, it appears that the family intends to fight it as a unit.
