Scott Evans' legal woes continue, but hopefully not for too much longer.

The younger brother of Avengers star Chris Evans pleaded guilty to one count of attempted possession of a controlled substance after being charged last month, a Los Angeles District Attorney spokesperson confirms to E! News.  

The One Life to Live star has agreed to take part in Narcotics Anonymous classes, and his attorney Shepard Kopp is hopeful the plea will be withdrawn and the case will be dismissed.

As for his client, tells E! News, "he's doing a great! This was a one time deal. I don't expect anything like this to happen again." 

Evans was arrested in Los Angeles in early December for allegedly trying to buy narcotics from an undercover police officer, the LAPD Hollywood Division told us, and was booked and charged with a felony, but eventually released on $10,000 bail. 

The 29-year-old, who will appear in the upcoming film Behaving Badly starring Selena Gomez and Dylan McDermott, is due back in court on July 15 for probation and sentencing.
