Queensland MP David Gibson has stepped down as chairman of Parliament's Select Ethics Committee after it was revealed he was charged with theft in 1999.
Former LNP member-turned independent candidate Scott Elms released court documents that show Mr Gibson was charged with four counts of theft while serving in the Army.
Mr Gibson, who is the Member for Gympie, said he pleaded guilty but no conviction was recorded.
However, he said he did not want the matter to affect the committee's work.
