"Christopher Tappin (65) will attend court in El Paso, Texas, at 11.30am local time on Thursday 1st November, to hear the US Department of Justice inform the judge of the basis of a plea bargain agreed by Mr Tappin. Should the Judge accept the terms, there is likely to be a period of several weeks for pre-sentencing assessment before Mr Tappin is recalled to Court to hear the Judge’s sentencing. The Tappins do not consider it appropriate to release any details of the plea agreement before the Judge has been afforded the courtesy of hearing them, after which the terms will become public."
