LAS VEGAS (AP) — An expelled Nevada state assemblyman plans to plead guilty in two Las Vegas criminal cases dating to the days before the 2013 legislative session, in a plea deal that would get him out of jail and into a mental health program.

Democratic lawmaker Steven Brooks' attorney, Adam Gill, and prosecutor Richard Scow said Thursday that if Brooks completes mental health court and anticipated probation, he could end with one misdemeanor resisting arrest charge on his Nevada record.

Brooks has felony convictions in California and spent 16 months in jail for evading a peace officer and resisting arrest stemming from a March 2013 freeway chase on Interstate 15.

Gill says Brooks will enter his Las Vegas pleas Aug. 28, and hopes to be freed from jail afterward.
