The ex-head of the Office of the Special Counsel wants to abandon his guilty plea, reports Mike Scarcella of the National Law Journal.
Prosecutors wrote in a filing that Bloch's lawyers are prepared to file a motion withdrawing his guilty plea.
They federal lawyers wrote that Bloch's lawyers want to withdraw his previous plea since the judge failed to tell Bloch that the charge carried at least a one month sentence.
"The government believes that the defendant's position is well-founded, and will not oppose his motion to withdraw his plea," a Justice Department lawyer said in the court papers filed Friday.
