Trotter pleads guilty to misdemeanor charge


Chicago -- An Illinois state senator has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor after being accused last year of trying to board a flight with a gun.


Donne Trotter's attorney, Thomas Durkin, says his client entered a guilty plea to reckless conduct on Wednesday as part of an agreement with prosecutors.


Durkin says the deal calls for the conviction to be stricken if Trotter successfully completes a year of non-reporting court supervision.


Durkin says a judge approved the agreement on Wednesday.
