According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, the Desperate Housewives alum, 57, asked for her passport back, which is being held by the U.S. Probation and Pre-Trial Services Department.

Huffman has been under probation since her release from the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California, in October 2019. The documents state Huffman will “shortly complete the period of supervised release the Court imposed” and has “already completed all other aspects of the sentence the Court imposed.”

The Tammy’s Always Dying star was arrested in March 2019 for paying $15,000 to improve her daughter Sophia’s SAT scores. Huffman pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud charges in May 2019. Four months later, the Emmy winner was sentenced to 14 days in prison, a $30,000 fine, a year of supervised release and 250 hours of community service.

In October 2019, Huffman reported to prison and was released 10 days later. The actress began serving her 250 hours of community service in November 2019 at the Teen Project, a nonprofit serving at-risk homeless teens and sex-trafficking survivors.

A source told Us at the time that Huffman is “committed” to her community service work. “There was definitely apprehension that Felicity felt from the staff, because no one knew how seriously Felicity was going to take this,” the insider said. “Most people just show, do the hours and leave. They aren’t engaged and fully present. Felicity is the opposite.”
