State Rep. LaShawn Ford pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor after being charged with bank fraud.

The West Side Democrat is expected to plead guilty to one count of delivering a false federal income tax return for 2007.

Ford, who is serving a fourth term in the House, was indicted on a felony bank charge after being accused of lying to obtain an extension of credit on six depressed real estate properties.

The misdemeanor carries a maximum sentence of a year in prison and a $100,000 fine.
