It was recently reported that actress Felicity Huffman will have a slightly shorter prison sentence than she was initially given, and that she is also being given special treatment, and the Internet is absolutely furious over the news. According to TMZ, the few hours that Huffman spent being taken into custody and booked in to prison counted toward her sentence, which means that she will only spend a total of 13 full days behind bars. It is also being reported that the actress will be given "extra amenities" that are normally not provided to other inmates. Social media users are not happy about the developments, and they are making their opinions known.

Huffman wound up behind bars at the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California after pleading guilty to charges against her in the college admissions scandal.
"I am pleading guilty to the charge brought against me by the United States Attorney's Office," she said in an apology statement. "I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions."
"I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues, and the educational community," Huffman added. "I want to apologize to them and, especially, I want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly."
"My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her. This transgression toward her and the public I will carry for the rest of my life," her statement concluded. "My desire to help my daughter is no excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty."
