MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A former journal clerk for the Alabama House accused of failing to file income tax returns and pay taxes has pleaded guilty.

The 41-year-old Clay Covington pleaded guilty Tuesday before Montgomery County Circuit Judge William Shashy to four counts of failure to file tax returns and one count of failure to pay income taxes.

Before pleading guilty, Covington paid $15,480.87 in restitution to the Alabama Department of Revenue for unpaid taxes, penalties and interest.

The indictment charges Covington with failing to pay income taxes on more than $237,600 in state wages, and $277,000 on income from the VictoryLand Casino and the Jefferson County Race Track. Both facilities are owned by Milton McGregor.

Shashy set sentencing for Covington for Aug. 7.
