Peter Madoff is the former chief compliance officer at the private investment arm of Bernard Madoff's business.

Court papers signed by a federal judge in Manhattan on Wednesday show Peter Madoff will plead guilty on Friday. Madoff also agreed to the criminal forfeiture of $143.1 billion, including all of his real and personal property.

Madoff agrees to serve 10 years in prison.

His attorney hasn't returned an email seeking comment.
