Former Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum will face an ethics complaint after Florida state officials found probable cause on five counts of violating the law in accepting gifts while traveling with lobbyists, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Florida Commission on Ethics has yet to publicize the records in the case, but an attorney for Gillum said on Friday following a court hearing that the case will now go before an administrative law judge. The Tampa Bay Times notes that the finding is not a determination of guilt.

“We’re going to have a full evidentiary hearing before an independent judge. It’ll be open to the public, and everybody can decide for themselves,” attorney Barry Richard told reporters. “There for sure will be no settlement.”

Tallahassee businessman Erwin Jackson filed the complaint last year, alleging that Gillum, who was the Democratic candidate for governor in the 2018 election, accepted gifts worth more than the $100 limit set by the state while in Costa Rica and New York City with his former friend, lobbyist Adam Corey, prior to his gubernatorial campaign.

Gillum initially reported that he paid all the expenses on each trip, and claimed that Corey had misled him.
