A change of plea hearing is set for 10:30 a.m. May 2 before U.S. District Court Judge Robin S. Rosenbaum in Fort Lauderdale.
Potts was a fugitive in Cuba for years before surrendering to U.S. authorities in November. His initial plea was not guilty. Now, though, it appears he'll change his plea to guilty as part of a plea bargain with the government.
Prosecutors have until April 30 to submit such an agreement to the court.
A calendar call set for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday has been cancelled.
