Colorado Man Expected to Plead Guilty in Anthrax Hoax

DENVER (AP) - A Colorado man is expected to plead guilty to
sending letters with white powder to the offices of Colorado and
Alabama members of Congress and Argentine consulates starting late
last year.

Forty-one-year-old Jay DeVaughn previously pleaded not guilty to
eight federal charges in Colorado, including mailing threatening
communications and false information and hoaxes.

DeVaughn's attorney, John Scipione (ship-ee-own), confirmed Tuesday that DeVaughn plans to change his plea to guilty at an Aug. 26 hearing.

Charges filed in Alabama will be transferred to Colorado.

DeVaughn is being held in a Denver-area federal prison.

Jeff Dorschner, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in
Denver, says details of a plea arrangement won't be released until
the hearing.
