Another person involved in a corruption case that led to the resignation of D.C. Council member Harry Thomas Jr. has agreed to plead guilty to his role in the case, an outcome that had been expected.

James Garvin was charged by criminal information, which signals a person's intent to plead guilty. Garvin's attorney, Vandy Jamison, had indicated the plea deal was coming.

Jamison also represents another man involved in the corruption case, Howard University professor Marshall D. Banks. Banks pleaded guilty Friday to helping to cover up the theft of government funds by former D.C. Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.

Both Banks and Garvin face the same charge of helping to conceal Thomas' actions. The charge carries a possible sentence of up to three years in prison.

A hearing for Garvin is scheduled in the morning Wednesday.
