BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of illegally transporting people from Wyoming to western North Dakota for purposes of engaging in prostitution says he will plead guilty.

Garrell James says he will plead guilty to three of the five federal charges against him, including travel to engage in prostitution. The plead deal also calls for him to plead guilty to prohibited person in charge of a firearm.

The three charges carry a total maximum penalty of 30 years in prison.

Court documents show that James was apprehended at a Dickinson motel on March 25.

Federal public defender Neil Fulton says his office is “turning our attention to sentencing.”
