Former state lawmaker Coy Privette pleaded guilty today to six counts of aiding and abetting prostitution.
Privette is a Cabarrus County commissioner and retired Baptist minister.
Rowan County District Attorney Bill Kenerly says the 74-year-old Privette can clear his criminal record if he completes 48 hours of community service and serves one year of probation.
Privette was arrested in June after authorities said he rented a Salisbury hotel room and paid for sexual acts with a 32-year-old woman. The Republican has resigned as president of the Christian Action League of North Carolina but has not left his post as a commissioner in Cabarrus County.
He was a member of the North Carolina House from 1984 to 1992.
