An attorney for ousted Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s former chief of staff John Harris said last week this client intends to soon change his plea to guilty from not guilty on corruption charges as part of a deal to cooperate with federal prosecutors in their case against the former governor.

Harris was arraigned on Thursday. He was among six charged, including Blagojevich, in a 19-count indictment announced earlier this month. Harris entered a guilty plea but his attorney said he was working out a plea agreement with prosecutors and planned to change the plea within the next 30 days.
