Attorney General Marty Jackley says 41-year-old Scott Swier, of Avon, pleaded guilty Thursday in Pierre to one count of failing to file or amend a statement of organization for a PAC, a class 2 misdemeanor.

The charges stemmed from a donation that Swier received while he was treasurer of the South Dakota Telecommunications PAC.

Swier's fines were suspended on the condition that he returns $6,500 to Free Conferencing Corp. and follows the law in the future.

He's now in private practice.
