Leland pleaded guilty to one count of common law offenses. His plea includes the conditions that he won't face jail time and federal charges against him will be dropped with prejudice.

The plea also requires him to resign from city council, which he has done.

Leland said he accepted a cash contribution even though he knew it was wrong.

He will be sentenced on June 7.
