Suspended Broward County Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion has agreed to plead guilty to a new federal information filed Tuesday that charges him with conspiracy to commit money laundering, according to a trio of sources.
Federal court records show that in exchange for Eggelletion’s plea, prosecutors have agreed to cap the amount of prison time he will do at five years. He can also be fined up to $250,000.
The maximum sentence for conspiracy to commit money laundering is 20 years.
“Mr. Eggelletion is fully apologetic for his actions and intends to rectify, to the extent he can, his conduct and has communicated that interest to the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” said defense attorney Benedict Kuehne, who declined further comment.
Eggelletion’s other attorneys include former U.S. Attorney Kendall Coffey of Miami and Pompano Beach’s Johnny L. McCray Jr.
