State Rep. Stephen Goldfinch, R-Georgetown

— The U.S. Attorney for the southern district of Texas has filed federal charges against S.C. Rep. Stephen Goldfinch, R-Georgetown.

From court documents:

On or about April 26, 2006 and continuing through December 30, 2008, in the southern District of Texas and elsewhere, the defendants, Stephen Goldfinch, aided and abetted by others known and unknown to the United States Attorney, caused the introduction and delivery for introduction into interstate commerce stem cells that were misbranded in that the stem cells packaging did not contain directions for use.

Goldfinch told The State newspaper on Tuesday that prosecutors plan to charge him with a misdemeanor and recommend probation. If he is convicted, it is unlikely Goldfinch would be removed from office.
