SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - A former Playboy Playmate has admitted helping her Canadian boyfriend after he illegally entered the United States in northern New York last summer.

Syracuse's The Post-Standard newspaper ( http://bit.ly/16esc3V) says Colleen Shannon pleaded guilty in federal court Tuesday to a felony charge and faces a sentence ranging from no jail time to 10 months.

Federal agents say the 35-year-old Los Angeles resident and her boyfriend were arrested after he illegally crossed the border and rendezvoused with her in Fort Covington. Officials say the boyfriend has a criminal record in Canada.

Shannon was the centerfold for Playboy's 50th anniversary edition in 2004. She works as a disc jockey and calls herself the world's sexiest DJ. She declined to comment after the court appearance.

Shannon's boyfriend told authorities he knew his criminal record would bar his U.S. entry. He's jailed and faces deportation.
