SAN DIEGO, CA — Embattled Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) will resign his seat in Congress next week, more than a month after he pleaded guilty to a charge of misusing campaign funds for personal expenses.

Hunter will resign effective Jan. 13, multiple outlets reported. He is set to be sentenced on March 17, facing a maximum of five years in prison.

Hunter and his wife were indicted last summer on five dozen criminal counts, including wire fraud, conspiracy and falsification of records. He initially pleaded not guilty to the count alleging he misused $250,000 in campaign funds for personal uses ranging from vacations to extramarital affairs to a plane ticket for his wife's pet rabbit, but changed his plea to guilty in December.
