Congressman pleads guilty to cocaine posession
WASHINGTON - Florida Congressman Henry "Trey" Radel has been sentenced to a year's probation after pleading guilty to cocaine posession.
Radel says he wants to "come out of this stronger" and continue serving his country.
He admitted to agreeing to buy cocaine for $250 from an undercover officer in Washington on October 29.
After that, federal authorities went to his apartment to tell him he would face charges.
The charges were made public Tuesday.
Radel says he struggles with alcoholism and will seek treatment and counseling.
