U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm has pleaded guilty in a federal tax-evasion case that he fought as he won re-election this fall.

Grimm pleaded guilty Tuesday in a New York federal court to one count of aiding in the filing of a false tax return.

Asked outside court if he planned to resign his seat, Grimm said no. He added that he planned to "get back to work."

Grimm had been set to go to trial in February on allegations he hid more than $1 million in sales and wages while running a Manhattan health-food restaurant. He apologized outside court, saying he should not have done what he did.

Sentencing is set for June 8. Prosecutors said between 24 and 30 months in prison would be appropriate; the defense estimated the appropriate sentence as 12 to 18 months.
