Jan. 7 (UPI) -- California Rep. Duncan Hunter announced Tuesday he will resign from the House next week about a month after pleading guilty to misusing campaign funds.
He faces five years in prison after pleading guilty to a single count of conspiracy to convert campaign funds to personal use in December.
Both Hunter and his wife, Margaret Hunter, originally pleaded not guilty to a 60-count federal indictment alleging they used more than $250,000 of his campaign re-election funds for personal expenses such as video games, private school tuition, oral surgery and utilities between 2009 and 2016.
In June, his wife changed her plea to guilty on a single count of conspiracy.
Prior to changing his plea to guilty, Hunter had described the case as a "witch hunt."
