Cesar Sayoc, the man suspected of sending series of pipe bombs in the mail to people who have been critical of President Donald Trump, is expected to plead guilty to the charges that have been brought against him.

He initially pleaded not guilty for the crimes he is suspected of. But on Friday, the court docket was updated to reveal that he has a scheduled hearing for March 21 to enter a plea.

The bombs were sent to top Democrats as well as CNN. The FBI said when it brought Sayoc into custody that though none of the bombs detonated, they were not hoaxes and were capable of causing harm.

Prosecutors have brought 30 charges against Sayoc related to these crimes. The docket does not specify which crimes he might be pleading guilty to next week.

According to the grand-jury indictment filed this week by prosecutors in North Carolina, the men's schemes went well beyond those with which they have been charged—namely, buying semiautomatic rifles, altering them into automatics, then shipping them from Idaho to North Carolina. The foursome not only engaged in paramilitary training in the Idaho desert, they surveilled two separate Black Lives Matters marches in Boise this summer and discussed killing participants. They also plotted to assassinate BLM founder Alicia Garza.
