ANCHORAGE, Alaska  - The 20-year-old son of a state lawmaker has pleaded guilty in a drug conspiracy case.

Federal prosecutors say Robin Gattis of Wasilla pleaded guilty Friday to a conspiracy count. He was among seven indicted last year on charges of conspiring to import a synthetic drug from China to Alaska. Sentencing was set for November.

KTUU ( says all of Gattis' codefendants have pleaded guilty to charges ranging from international money laundering to possession of methylone, which is similar to ecstasy.

Prosecutors say a man who took methylone delivered by Gattis died.

Gattis is the son of state Rep. Lynn Gattis, a Wasilla Republican. Her office issued a statement Friday saying the lawmaker and her husband "appreciate everyone's prayers" and "the family also appreciates their privacy during this difficult time."
