Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) will plead guilty to one felony charge of tax evasion, the New York Daily News reported on Monday.
Grimm is expected to plead guilty at a court hearing on Tuesday at the federal court in Brooklyn.
The news comes after Grimm was charged in April with 20 felony counts for allegedly concealing more than $1 million in wages and sales at the restaurant he co-owned in Manhattan. He was also charged with hiring undocumented immigrants.
Grimm initially pleaded not guilty to all the charges. He was re-elected in November and vowed to fight the case against him.
Grimm made headlines earlier this year when he was caught on camera threatening to throw a television reporter off a balcony.
