Randy Travis: Country singer expected to plead guilty in drunken-driving case

- Associated Press - Monday, January 28, 2013

SHERMAN, Texas (AP) — A prosecutor says country music star Randy Travis is expected to enter a guilty plea in a drunken-driving case in north Texas.

Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown said Monday that details of the plea agreement will be released following Mr. Travis' court appearance Thursday in Sherman.

Mr. 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.

Mr. Brown says Mr. Travis will plead guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving, which is punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine. The 53-year-old Mr. Travis still faces a retaliation charge for allegedly threatening officers.

Mr. Travis' attorney wasn't immediately available for comment.
