Accused KKK Leader to Plead in Cross Burning Case

OZARK, Ala An accused Ku Klux Klan leader in southern Alabama intends to plead guilty to charges stemming from a cross burning in a black neighborhood.
An attorney for Steven Joshua Dinkle notified a judge Friday that Dinkle intends to plead guilty at a court hearing next week.
Prosecutors say Dinkle conspired with another person to burn a 6-foot cross in a black neighborhood in an attempt to intimidate its residents. He's also accused of lying to investigators. Dinkle said that he withdrew from the KKK months before the cross burning.
He's charged with conspiracy to violate housing rights, criminal interference with the right to fair housing, using fire to commit a federal felony and two counts of obstruction of justice.
