Democrat Michael Vaughn of Bowie, Md. resigned less than an hour before this year’s legislative session started, citing “health challenges.”

The U.S. attorney’s office said March 8 that Vaughn will make an appearance in the afternoon in court in Greenbelt, Md.

Prosecutors say Vaughn accepted more than $10,000 in cash bribes, “influencing the performance of his official duties,” including voting for a bill to expand alcohol sales on Sundays. Their statement says that from January 2015 through April 2016, Vaughn conspired with a liquor regulation official and store owners “to enrich himself personally.”

Another former Prince George’s delegate, Democrat William Campos, pleaded guilty in January to bribery and conspiracy in the case.
