The wife of a former Virginia Railway Express employee pleaded guilty Friday to helping him conceal more than $200,000 in bribes made by a landscaping and maintenance subcontractor.

Angela Jannell, 50, of Fredericksburg could face up to three years in prison for the single count of misprision of a felony, which means failing to report knowledge of a crime, according to the office of U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia Neil H. MacBride.

Her husband, Kevin Wirth Jannell, had pleaded guilty in September to bribery in the case.
