White House Jumper Expected to Take Plea Deal

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) - A man who the Secret Service says scaled a White House fence and dashed into the executive mansion before being caught inside carrying a folding knife is expected to take a plea deal.

Omar Gonzalez is expected in federal court in Washington on Friday. When Gonzalez and his lawyer were last in court in February, the lawyer, David Bos, said attorneys were close to resolving the case with a plea and that he expected his client to take a plea at Friday's hearing.

He did not say what the plea deal would entail.

The Sept. 19 incident in which Gonzalez reached the East Room of the White House contributed to the resignation of Secret Service head Julia Pierson.

Gonzalez is an Army veteran from Copperas Cove, Texas.
