The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - World -

NEW YORK (AP) — Disgraced fi­nancier Bernard Mad­off’s long­time au­di­tor is ex­pected to plead guilty next week in a co-op­er­a­tion deal, fed­eral pros­e­cu­tors said Fri­day in a let­ter to a judge.

Pros­e­cu­tors wrote in the let­ter to U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Heller­stein that ac­coun­tant David Friehling was ex­pected to plead guilty at a con­fer­ence on Tues­day.

In the let­ter, signed by As­sis­tant U.S. At­tor­ney Lisa A. Ba­roni, pros­e­cu­tors said they wanted to no­tify the court so that it could pro­vide no­tice to vic­tims of Mad­off’s multi­bil­lion-dol­lar fraud that the plea hear­ing will take place.
