A doctor's son pleaded guilty Monday to tricking his pregnant ex-girlfriend into taking a pill that caused her to have a miscarriage.

John Andrew Welden faces up to 15 years in prison and three years of supervised release when he is sentenced Dec. 5 on charges of tampering with a consumer product and conspiracy to commit mail fraud.

Welden is free on supervised release until the sentencing hearing.

Welden's ex-girlfriend, Remee Jo Lee, was in court Monday to watch the proceedings. She cried softly as Welden told the judge that he would plead guilty.
