Felicity Huffman is less than a week into her two-week federal prison sentence following her part in the college admissions scandal - and reporters managed to catch her out in her green prison jumpsuit.

Huffman is currently serving her time in the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, Calif., about 35 miles east of San Francisco, earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25.

The When They See Us actress pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter's SAT score to be falsified. As well as the prison sentence, she was fined $30,000 and must carry out 250 hours of community service. She will also be on probation for a year. 

"Felicity wasn't expressing any fears about going to prison because she is only going to be there a short time," a source told US Weekly as Huffman checked in early to begin her sentence. "She wants to take the short time there to learn as much as possible about how the other inmates ended up in prison. Prison justice reform is a very important cause for Felicity. She was interviewed for placement a few weeks ago."
