Felicity Huffman brought treats in the form of cupcakes as she arrived for community service yesterday.

The Desperate Housewives star is working with The Teen Project in LA, after the fallout from the college admissions bribery scandal.

The actress has already served 11 days of a 14-day prison sentence for her part in the conspiracy.

She now has to complete 250 days of community service.

The Teen Project is a treatment centre helping to rehabilitate young women at risk of sex trafficking and homelessness.

Felicity pleaded guilty to conspiracy and fraud during a court appearance in May.

After her sentencing in September, Felicity said in a statement that she accepted the verdict ‘without reservation’.

She added: ‘There no excuses or justifications for my actions. Period.’

The star is reported to have paid $15,000 (£11,600) to have her daughter’s college entrance exams doctored.

As well as the long-running smash hit show Desperate Housewives, which costarred Teri Hatcher, Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross, Felicity is known for appearances in Get Shorty and Frasier.

She even received a nomination for a best actress Oscar in 2006 for Transamerica.

Along with husband William H. Macy, she is a parent to two daughters: Sophia Grace, 19, and 17-year-old Georgia.

William, who is also a famous actor, has starred in films like Fargo, Boogie Nights and Jurassic Park 3.

Two more famous names caught up in the scandal – Fuller House star Lori Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli – have pleaded not guilty to every charge given to them, and were last month given an additional bribery charge.

If found guilty, Lori could serve up to 50 years in jail, with her trial expected to play out in the coming months.
