Federal prosecutors say a man accused of slapping a crying toddler on a plane will plead guilty.
An email from federal prosecutors did not say what charge Joe Rickey Hundley will plead guilty to during a Wednesday afternoon hearing.
He faces a misdemeanour simple assault charge.
His trial had been set to begin on Thursday in federal court in Atlanta.
Authorities say Hundley used a racial slur to refer to the 19-month-old boy and then hit him under the right eye as the flight from Minneapolis began its descent to the Atlanta airport in February. - Sapa-AP
