Reports say former New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi may plead guilty as early as this morning to a corruption charge for his role in a scandal involving the state's multibillion dollar pension fund.

State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo's office released a statement last night saying no agreement has been reached.

Hevesi controlled the pension fund until his resignation in 2006 when he pleaded guilty to a felony. He admitted using state workers to chauffeur his wife.

Earlier this month, Cuomo reached a million-dollar settlement with Bill White, the former president of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and a former fundraiser for Hevesi.
