The call girl implicated in the Eliot Spitzer scandal isn't the only one in her family getting some unwanted publicity. Kyle Youmans, brother of the woman known as Ashley Alexander Dupre, pleaded guilty this week to possession of heroin with intent to distribute.

He's scheduled to be sentenced next month.

Youmans is already serving five years' probation on charges that include intent to distribute heroin in a school zone.

He has publicly defended his sister, who was born Ashley Youmans, calling her a "great person" and saying he will stand by her side no matter what happens.
