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.
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.
