State Rep. John Bowman will resign from the Missouri House of Representatives effective Jan. 31 after pleading guilty on Jan. 11 to a federal misdemeanor charge of bribing a bank official. Bowman, who originally had been charged with a felony, is expected to receive probation when he is sentenced on April 3.

Bowman, D-St. Louis, was one of 17 people indicted in January 2007 as part of a fraudulent credit scheme run by Robert Conner, a former vice president of Bank of America’s Chesterfield branch who offered lines of credit to unqualified applicants in exchange for kickbacks ranging from $2,500 to $5,000. In November, Conner was convicted of 36 felony charges relating to the scheme.
