LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 47-year-old Las Vegas attorney has pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy, tax evasion and wire fraud charges in an ongoing case involving a broad scheme to steer condominium homeowner association business to favored businesses.

Federal prosecutors say Barry Levinson pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in a plea deal calling for him to lose his law license.

Levinson could face decades in prison at sentencing May 5.

Levinson’s attorney, Brent Bryson, didn’t immediately respond Tuesday to messages.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1fFbVvc ) that Levinson agreed to pay up to $270,000 in restitution, and is expected to plead guilty in Nevada state court to charges stemming from the theft of $1 million from clients.

Levinson is the 30th person to plead guilty in the federal homeowner association case.
