The mother of a man accused of trying to kill Donald Trump has told ITV News he will plead guilty to lesser charges when he appears in court.

Michael Sandford, who has autism, was arrested at a political rally in a Las Vegas after he allegedly tried to grab an police officer's gun.

His mother, Lynne, is battling to bring him home as soon as possible.

The family's lawyer says she is also hopeful a psychiatric report will play a key part in Michael's defence.

Michael Sandford has agreed to plead guilty to being an illegal alien in possession of a firearm and disrupting government business. He will enter his plea on Tuesday before the US District Judge.
