AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - The lawyer for an Alabama man accused of
poisoning the famed Toomer's Corner oak trees at Auburn University
says he will attempt to reach a plea deal with prosecutors.

Harvey Updyke Jr. is scheduled to appear Wednesday in U.S.
District Court.

His attorney, Glennon Threatt Jr., told WBRC-TV of Birmingham
that he will try to reach a plea deal with prosecutors to avoid
possible jail time for his client.

Updyke faces charges of criminal mischief after authorities said
he used herbicide to poison the trees.
