ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- An attorney for one of the defendants in the hazing death of a Florida A&M drum major says his client is going to plead guilty and cooperate with prosecutors.
A lawyer for 24-year-old Caleb Jackson said at a court hearing Friday that his client will plead guilty to felony hazing and manslaughter.
Jackson currently is being held in Leon County Jail on a violation of probation and could enter the plea as soon as April.
Attorney Chuck Hobbs says Jackson has expressed remorse over what happened to drum major Robert Champion.
Champion died in Orlando in November 2011 after he collapsed following what prosecutors say was a savage beating during a hazing ritual.
