Ted Loza pleaded guilty Friday afternoon to one count of accepting an illegal gratuity and one count of making a false statement. Under federal sentencing guidelines, he's likely to receive between eight and 14 months in prison and a fine of up to $20,000.

Loza was charged in 2009 with taking bribes and free trips in exchange for pushing legislation that would benefit some taxicab businesses. As part of his guilty plea, he admitted accepting $1,500 in cash from an industry representative.

Graham has said he was not involved in any illegal or unethical behavior and has not been charged.
