The former superintendent of the Breathitt County school system plans to plead guilty in a federal vote-buying case.
An attorney representing Arch Turner filed a motion Thursday requesting a hearing date for Turner to plead guilty.
Turner is charged with being part of a scheme to buy votes in the May 2010 primary in the county.
The charges against him are that he tried to improperly influence a witness; conspired to buy votes; provided cash to buy votes; got a witness to lie; and lied himself to an FBI agent investigating the scheme.
Never miss a local story.
Turner resigned in May after he was charged.
Ten others have pleaded guilty or have been convicted of taking part in vote-buying in the same election.
