Federal prosecutors in Chicago on Wednesday reached an agreement to drop felony corruption charges against Aaron Schock, the former Illinois congressman indicted in 2016 on charges that he misspent government and campaign funds.
In exchange, Mr. Schock, who was once seen as a rising star in the Republican Party, vowed to pay back taxes and reimburse his campaign.
“I am ready to put this behind me and move forward,” Mr. Schock said in a statement. “I have stated consistently and constantly that mistakes were made in the handling of my campaign and congressional offices, and I have acknowledged responsibility for that — but mistakes are not crimes.”
Mr. Schock resigned his House seat in March 2015 after he came under fire for lavish spending, including an opulent redesign of his Capitol Hill office that was reportedly inspired by a drawing room on “Downton Abbey.” It featured blood-red walls, a crystal chandelier and a plume of pheasant feathers. A Washington Post article about the renovation led to an investigation into whether Mr. Schock had improperly accepted pro bono interior design services. He later paid back ,000.
Other allegations quickly emerged, including that he had spent taxpayer money and campaign funds on private jets and concerts, and that he had failed to report extravagant gifts as required by House ethics rules. He was indicted by a federal grand jury the next year on 24 counts, including wire fraud and theft of government funds. Two of the counts were later dismissed.

Mr. Schock’s case had been scheduled to go to trial in June. The case was being prosecuted by the United States attorney for the Northern District of Illinois, after prosecutors in the Central District recused themselves.
“We conducted a thorough review of the case before proceeding with today’s agreement,” Joseph D. Fitzpatrick, an assistant United States attorney and a spokesman for the Northern District, said in a statement.
“We believe this agreement provides a sensible resolution,” he added. “It’s a just result and provides the necessary public accountability.”
The deal, known as an agreement to defer prosecution, was approved by Judge Matthew F. Kennelly. It requires Mr. Schock to pay ,000 to the I.R.S. and ,000 to his congressional campaign funds. His campaign committee, Schock for Congress, pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of failing to properly report expenses, and must pay a fine of more than ,000.
George Terwilliger, a lawyer for Mr. Schock, criticized the previous prosecutors in a statement.
“We knew all along if we got this case in front of reasonable prosecutors, it would not stand up,” he said.
Mr. Schock, who hails from Peoria, Ill., and was just 27 when he took office in 2009, had attracted national attention, partly because of his lively social media presence, which often featured adventure travel. In 2011, Men’s Health named him “The Ripped Representative” when he appeared on the cover with his toned abdomen exposed.B:
