FARGO, N.D. (AP) — One of three family members from Bakersfield, Calif., accused of supplying methamphetamine to buyers in North Dakota and Minnesota plans to change his plea.

Henry Paredez Jr. and his wife, Ariana Paredez, are charged in federal court in Fargo with three counts, including conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute a controlled substance. Henry Paredez Sr. is charged with one count of money laundering. All three have pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say the conspiracy involved more than 500 grams of meth. Henry Paredez Jr. is alleged to be the supervisor of the operation, which moved the drugs into North Dakota through various packing and shipping companies.

The lawyer for Henry Paredez Sr. filed noticed Wednesday for a change of plea hearing.
