Felicity Huffman was sentenced Friday to 14 days in prison for her involvement in the college admissions scandal case but the facility where she may do her time has raised a few eyebrows.
The actress, who also was sentenced to 250 hours of community service and ordered to pay a $20,000 fine, requested to serve out her time at FCI Dublin, California. According to her legal team, the correctional institution was closest to her home. But if the request is granted, Huffman is likely to have an easier time than she would in other lockups.
For starters, the institution has a "beauty shop" on its premises where inmates can have their hair done, according to an inmate admission and orientation handbook.
There are sundecks where inmates can sunbathe and the housing units are equipped with microwaves, hot water dispensers, ice machines, irons, hairdryers, curling irons, and exercise equipment.
The facility also has entertainment covered. Inmates are permitted to watch the lobby TV in the evenings, and when hunger strikes, they are spoiled for choice in terms of food. The Blast obtained a copy of the commission list and items like French vanilla cappuccinos, pizza and taco kits, and Oreos are all included on the menu.
The decision of where Huffman serves her time when she surrenders on Oct. 25 ultimately lies with the Bureau of Prisons. In a statement, the agency said it would take various factors into account, including the "medical and programming needs" of an inmate as well as the "proximity to an individual's release residence or court hearings," according to CNN.
Considering that the FCI Dublin facility is considered to be the closest facility to Huffman's home, there is a strong possibility that she may very well get to serve her time in what has been deemed one of the "10 cushiest prisons" in America, according to The Blast.
