NEW YORK (AP) — A Russian woman accused of blackmailing former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer won't have to face trial on the allegations.
Svetlana Travis Zakharova pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor larceny charge involving a different man.
A judge sentenced her to 90 days in jail. She's already served more than that while awaiting trial.
Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark says the plea bargain also resolves an indictment in which Zakharova had been accused of extorting Spitzer by threatening to reveal details of their sexual relationship.
Zakharova's lawyer says she denies blackmailing the Democrat.
She pleaded guilty to signing a New Jersey man's name to a lease, costing him $18,000 when she didn't pay rent.
Spitzer resigned in 2008 after he was identified as a prostitution ring client. He was never charged.
