Disgraced former City Councilman Ruben Wills pleaded guilty to failing to disclose a personal loan on his financial disclosure report.
Wills, 48, was convicted in July of stealing more than $ 30,000 in taxpayer money to purchase food, clothes, gas and a $ 750 Louis Vuitton handbag.
The Queens Democrat was sentenced to two to six years in prison.
On Monday, he pleaded guilty to a one count misdemeanor for not divulging the loan in his 2012 report with the city’s Conflicts of Interest Board.

Wills, who represented southeaster Queens from 2010 until his conviction, will not serve any extra time behind bars as part of the deal. Authorities said that’s largely because any sentence from a judge would have likely been merged with his prior case.
“No public servant is above the law, and we’ll continue to root out and prosecute public corruption across New York,” said Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.
