TMZ shared the photo on Twitter, and fans were quick to air their thoughts on it. While some expressed their pride in her strength, others thought it was an unjust experience and that she looked older than her age.

While InTouch Weekly tweeted a picture of a smiling Felicity, it appears the whole saga hasn't been a smooth ride for the actress. Still, her decision to be steadfast and take responsibility for her actions have earned her the hearts of many.

Two months ago, the mother of two was charged with bribery; she was accused of paying $15,000 to procure an increased exam score for her daughter, Sophia.

She was sentenced to two weeks in the Federal Correctional Institute, after which she is to serve the community for 250 hours. The accused is also to pay a sum of $30,000, and she will be under the radar of law enforcement for 12 months.

The award-winning actress, however, has all the love and great empathy from her family and loved ones. During her prison time, her husband, William Macy, and their second daughter, Georgia, checked in on the TV star.

For Sophia, she still feels the dreadful experience of seeing her mom in handcuffs. Regardless of the reactions from the public, William explained that his wife of over two decades is responsible for his happy life.

Apart from owning up to her fault, Felicity has demonstrated discipline by going by the prison rules, and with her actions, she hopes she gets a second chance to prove herself to her fans.
