The Record reports 46-year-old Georgios Spyropoulos of Clifton faces up to 10 years in state prison. He pleaded guilty Monday afternoon to conspiracy to murder his former boss.

Authorities have said an informant told them Spyropoulos was searching for a hitman to torture and kill his boss, Alexandros Sgourdos. They alleged that Spyropoulos believed Sgourdos was withholding profits and keeping a large amount of cash in a safe.

Spyropoulos was arrested in April 2013. He was indicted on attempted murder and other charges

Sgourdos co-owns the Tick Tock diners in Clifton and Manhattan.
