An Arkansas lawmaker pleaded no contest Monday to not paying state income taxes and agreed to pay thousands of dollars back to the state, but his lawyer said the legislator had no plans to step down from his statehouse seat. State Rep. Mickey Gates of Hot Springs entered the plea in Garland County Court and was sentenced to six years' probation under an agreement with prosecutors. Gates, a Republican, was arrested last year and charged with not filing state tax returns from 2012 through 2017.
