Huffman will now begin to fulfill the rest of her sentence.

“Ms. Huffman is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions,”a rep for the actress told People earlier this week. “She will begin serving the remainder of the sentence Judge Talwani imposed — one year of supervised release, with conditions including 250 hours of community service — when she is released.”

The Emmy winning actress will also have to pay a $30,000 fine.

This whole trauma began when Huffman pleaded guilty back in May for paying admissions consultant $15,000 to have someone else correct her daughter Sophia’s SAT answers.

But now, with the emotional pain of prison behind her, Huffman can begin her journey to better days.
