Jeffrey Borer and Arvel Jett Reeves have pleaded guilty to secretly videotaping Michael Jackson, in November 2003, when he flew to Santa Barbara with his attorney Mark Geragos to surrender in the child-molestation investigation.
Borer and Reeves admitted by plea agreements that they installed two videorecorders, to record "a professional entertainer" and his lawyer November 2003.
They entered their plea to U.S. District Judge A. Howard Matz.
The federal prosecutors have agreed to dismiss two other charges, endeavouring to intercept oral communication and witness tampering.
They face up to five years in prison, and a fine of $250K.
