Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman is among at least 40 people charged in a US college cheating scam.

The alleged scheme involved helping students cheat on entrance exams, as well as getting non‑athletic students admitted on fake athletic scholarships.

Elite schools in the US like Yale, Stanford, and Georgetown were among the destination universities.

Huffman made a "charitable contribution" of $15,000 to participate in the scheme on behalf of her eldest daughter.

She allegedly arranged to use the scheme a second time, for her younger daughter, before deciding not to do so.

33 parents were also charged as well as 13 athletics coaches.
