St. Louis Today reported:

Former Missouri Gov. Roger Wilson has pleaded guilty this afternoon in connection with indictments late Wednesday on allegations of laundering campaign contributions to the Missouri Democratic Party through a St. Louis law firm.

Herzog Crebs partner Ed Griesedieck, indicted along with Wilson, also plans to plead guilty, said his attorney Matt Schelp.

The $8,000 in contributions originated with a state-created workers’ compensation company, Columbia-based Missouri Employers Mutual Insurance Co., and Wilson.

“I made a mistake. I have taken public responsibility for the mistake. I apologize to everyone. I will bear the consequences of my mistake and will have no comment other than that,” Wilson said outside the courtroom, reading from a prepared statement.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release that Wilson faces up to one year imprisonment and a fine of up to $100,000. Wilson’s lawyer, Robert Haar, said his client faces probation to six months in prison and the possibility of a fine.
