Hafer to Plead Guilty to Lying to the FBI
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Hafer was originally charged with two counts of making false statements, but is pleading guilty to one count Friday morning. The charge carries a sentence of up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
Hafer’s indictment stems from an investigation into her relationship with Chester county businessman Richard Ireland.
Hafer served as Pennsylvania Treasurer from 1997 to 2005.
Ireland was charged in March, but his charges were dismissed during the trial.
