KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) - The adult son of an Arizona lawmaker from Kingman has pleaded guilty to drug charge.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports that 28-year-old Michael Goodale pleaded guilty on Thursday to attempting to transport narcotic drugs for sale.

Goodale is the son of state Rep. Doris Goodale.

Michael Goodale is expected to receive more than three years in prison when he's sentenced Jan. 4.

Goodale and his 31-year-old sister Stephanie were arrested May 23 as part of an investigation into the sale of heroin into the Kingman area.

Police said two people from Las Vegas had met Michael Goodale and his girlfriend to deliver heroin and seized a half-ounce of heroin and $6,000 in cash at the scene.

The case against Stephanie Goodale is still pending.
