MILWAUKEE (WKOW) -- Thursday, a former aide to Governor Walker will plead guilty to misconduct in office.
With that plea, she's facing time in jail, but her sentence will be reduced.
Kelly Rindfleisch is charged with four counts of misconduct in office.
Under a plea deal, she'll plead guilty to one count and the remaining charges will be dropped.
Rindfleisch will avoid a trial with the agreement.
And that means Governor Scott Walker won't have to take the stand; something he said he was prepared to do.
"You know, Mr. Chisholm's office had talked to us before, they had us on their list. We've cooperated and will continue to cooperate along the way. So I don't imagine anything will change and we're fully prepared no matter what happens," said Walker.
Rindfleisch is accused of doing campaign work on county time while working under then-Milwaukee County executive Scott Walker.
Under the plea deal, prosecutors agreed to recommend probation for Rindfleisch and an unspecified time in jail.
