Guilty Plea

A Yemeni man plans to plead guilty to piracy next week for his role in the hijacking of a yacht off the coast of Africa that left four Americans dead, his attorney said Thursday.

Mounir Ali’s attorney, Jim Theuer, said Ali would plead guilty to the charge in federal court on Monday as part of a plea deal with prosecutors. Like the 10 Somalis in the case who pleaded guilty before him, Ali is expected to cooperate with the government.
