The man accused of running an escort company that brought down New York's governor has pleaded guilty to conspiracy.

Mark Brener, of Cliffside Park, N.J., becomes the third of four defendants to plead guilty in the sensational case.

He agreed Thursday to serve 24 months to 30 months in prison as part of a plea deal.

Prosecutors say former Gov. Eliot Spitzer was a client of Brener's Emperors Club VIP service.

Spitzer, who has not been charged, resigned March 12 as New York's governor when court papers revealed he was "Client No. 9" in the prostitution case.
