Prosecutors said Jackson, who was also on the board of directors for DART, met with an informant and an undercover federal agent and agreed on a money laundering scheme.

In the plea, the 52-year-old admitted he laundered about $400,000 for that undercover agent.

Jackson faces five years in prison and, according to the State Bar of Texas, will likely be stripped of his law license.
