Lawyer Mike McCrum said Hurd would plead guilty, prior to a trial set to begin next week in Dallas, to a charge of conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine, a plea without an agreed-upon sentence.
The charge carries a sentence of 10 years to life in a federal prison.
Hurd was first arrested in 2011, accused of agreeing to buy cocaine from an undercover agent in Chicago. He was re-arrested last year when his bond was revoked over two failed drug tests, the San Antonio (Texas) Express-News reported.
