Chicago: David Coleman Headley, a Chicago man accused of helping plot the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks and a never-executed assault on a Danish newspaper, will enter a guilty plea before a US judge, his lawyer said.
Defense attorney John T. Theis, in a phone interview, confirmed his client’s plan to change the plea of innocent he entered on 27 January. The lawyer declined to say to what charge or charges Headley will admit guilt during his 18 March court appearance.
“We expect there will be a plea agreement,” Theis said, declining to comment further.
