WUSA9 shared the scoop last night:
DC Councilman Harry Thomas, Jr., is talking to close associates who tell 9 News Now that the Councilman will agree to resign from office as part of a plea agreement with federal prosecutors.
This all started with allegations that Thomas stole $300,000 for youth baseball, then used the money for personal trips, golf outings and expensive items such as an Audi SUV and a motorcycle.
His associates tell 9News Now that Councilman Thomas will plead guilty to at least one felony, possibly more. He expects to get a two to three year prison sentence.
However, NBC4’s Tom Sherwood tweeted:
Sources say rumors that Thomas already indicted and about to turn himself in “totally false.” rumors of agreed jail time also “not true.”
