SHERMAN, Texas -- A prosecutor says country music star Randy Travis is expected to enter a guilty plea in a drunken-driving case in North Texas.
Greyson County District Attorney Joe Brown says details of the agreement will be released following Travis' court appearance Thursday in Sherman.
Travis was naked when he was arrested following a single-vehicle accident Aug. 7 near Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas. Authorities have said his blood-alcohol level was more than 0.15. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.
Brown says Travis will plead guilty to misdemeanour drunken driving, punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.
The 53-year-old Travis also faced a retaliation charge for allegedly threatening officers, though that charge is no longer in court files.
His attorney wasn't available for comment.
