Former New York Comptroller Alan Hevesi pleaded guilty to a felony on Thursday in a pay-to-play kickback scheme. Hevesi admitted to accepting nearly $1 million in benefits in exchange for approving $250 million of pension fund investments.

Hevesi faces up to four years in prison for a felony count of receiving rewards for official misconduct. He served as state comptroller from 2003 to 2006, stepping down after pleading guilty of defrauding the government for using a state-employed driver for his personal use.
