A Flint city councilman will learn Monday if he is going to spend the next year in jail.

Councilman Eric Mays entered a plea of ‘no contest’ to a charge of willful neglect of duty in August.

Mays was charged in connection with pawning his city issued lap top computer several times.

This isn’t the first legal issue for Mays. He served three weeks at the Genesee County jail last year for "impaired driving."

Mays easily won re-election to his city council seat earlier this month.  Last week, he cast a critical vote to approve a new 30-year contract with the Great Lakes Water Authority.
