Is Felicity Huffman getting special treatment in prison?
Everyone is taken aback by images of a smiling Huffman exiting the prison facility, then walking freely through the prison parking lot.
She didn’t appear to be accompanied by guards.
Macy was spotted wearing a blue baseball cap, collared shirt and blazer.
According to “Dance Moms” star Abby Lee Miller, who served eight months in federal prison for bankruptcy fraud, inmates are never allowed visits this early into serving their sentences.
“It took me up to 90 days to get people approved to come and visit. There is a huge application form to fill out, big background check...." she said.
Prison consultant and former inmate Larry Levine said Huffman’s treatment smacks of special privilege.
“It is a good two- or three-week process to get a visitor approved. This lady had her visits approved in two days? Three days? It is almost as if she got there and somebody went and circumvented the federal prison's own policy.”
Huffman is serving time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, outside San Francisco. According to the prison's website, "a visiting list will be prepared and distributed within seven days" of receiving the required information from the inmate and their visitors.
Levine also said she's also receiving special treatment with meal privileges.
"They sent her to the front of the line with a food tray — go ahead and eat, sit down. It is almost like they are putting her in semi-quarantine, trying to keep her away from the inmate population," Levine added.
The former "Desperate Housewives" star pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to boost her daughter's college entrance exam score. Her release date is Oct. 27.
