Fossella suddenly pleads guilty

via the Brooklyn Paper;

Disgraced former Rep. Vito Fossella has abandoned his appeal of last year’s drunk-driving conviction in a Virginia court and will likely begin a five-day sentence behind bars this weekend.

After fighting to for months to stay out of jail after last year’s drunk-driving arrest and conviction in suburban Virginia, the former Bay Ridge Republican withdrew his appeal this morning and entered a guilty plea.

Fossella will report to jail Friday evening and serve four days with the night he served when arrested counting towards his fifth day.
