LAS VEGAS (AP) — A former Nevada state lawmaker could be freed from jail in Las Vegas after pleading guilty to felony charges in separate criminal cases dating to the days before his expulsion from the Legislature last year.

Defense attorney Adam Gill said Thursday that former Democratic Assemblyman Steven Brooks' family planned to post $10,000 bail to free him to await evaluation for a mental health court program.

Brooks pleaded guilty in separate cases to firearm and resisting a public officer charges, in a plea deal that avoided trial and made him eligible for freedom after 17 months in California and Nevada jails.

Brooks last month pleaded no contest to felony evading a peace officer and resisting arrest in California stemming from his March 2013 arrest after an Interstate 15 freeway chase.
