A former Arkansas state lawmaker who is the nephew of Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson pleaded guilty Tuesday to accepting bribes from lobbyists and filing a false tax return as part of a deal with federal prosecutors to dismiss other corruption charges against him.
Former state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson admitted in Little Rock federal court to taking more than $150,000 from the co-owner of orthodontic clinics in exchange for efforts to change a state dental practice law. He also admitted to using more than $10,000 in campaign contributions to pay for Netflix fees, jewelry, gym memberships and utility bills.
Federal prosecutors alleged Hutchinson failed to report $20,000 in monthly payments from a law firm and concealed other sources of income on his 2011 tax returns.
