Ten members of an alleged Russian spy ring in the U.S. entered guilty pleas to a single count of conspiracy to act as an unregistered agent for a foreign government in federal court in Manhattan.

Under the deal, the defendants would agree to be expelled from the U.S. in exchange for avoiding prison.

The agreement is expected to speed negotiations for a swap between the U.S. and Russia of the alleged deep-cover agents for prisoners being held in Russia.
