    Harry Thomas, Jr. awaits sentencing

    A Washington attorney says another plea deal is coming in the corruption case that has led to resignation of a D.C. Council member.

    Attorney Vandy Jamison says James Garvin will sign a plea deal next week, but declined to comment further.

    Jamison made the comments as another client he represents, 71-year-old Marshall D. Banks, pleaded guilty Friday in federal court to helping cover up the theft of government funds by former D.C. Councilmember Harry Thomas Jr.

    According to court documents, Garvin, a golf pro at a Washington course, worked with Banks at a foundation from which Thomas was accused of misappropriating funds.
