DENVER (AP) - According to court documents, a former senior manager of the Regional Transportation District who is accused of accepting bribes intends to change his not guilty plea.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1WDuh4W ) that lawyers for Kenneth Hardin requested a change of plea hearing to be scheduled in lieu of the start of his trial.

Prosecutors say Hardin accepted $125,000 to $145,000 in bribes over six years. He had faced a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and up to $250,000 in penalties for his four-count bribery indictment.

He is accused of accepting cash payments when he was manager of RTD’s civil rights division, which is responsible for the agency’s disadvantaged business enterprise and minority contract programs.
