Felicity Huffman has been seen in public for the first time since she was arrested for her alleged role in a college bribery scam.

The actress appeared emotionally drained as she was photographed leaving a Downtown Los Angeles courthouse late Tuesday flanked by officers. Huffman wore a navy zip-up sweatshirt, dark pants, matching slide-on sneakers, and glasses, while she kept her hair pulled into a ponytail.

Her release came more than 12 hours after armed FBI agents arrived at her Los Angles home to execute a warrant for her arrest.

The star, 56, was freed on a $250,000 bond, according to the Associated Press. She was also ordered to hand over her passport.

Her next preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 29 at a Boston court, Deadline reported.
