SEATTLE -  The son of Seattle strip club mogul Frank Colacurcio Sr. has pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of racketeering conspiracy.

Frank Colacurcio Jr. agreed to a one-year prison sentence and no further involvement in adult entertainment in Washington state at his hearing in U.S. District Court Friday.

Other charges against Colacurcio Jr., including mail fraud and conspiracy to launder money, will be dismissed at sentencing.

Last year prosecutors charged the Colacurcios and four associates as part of a racketeering investigation into rampant prostitution and other crimes at Seattle-area strip clubs. The others have already pleaded guilty, and Colacurcio Jr.'s plea leaves his 93-year-old father as the only remaining defendant.

The four strip clubs have all been shut down.
