LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A blogger accused of posting unreleased tracks from the Guns n' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" has agreed to plead guilty to charges of copyright infringement.
According to Reuters, Kevin Cogill will enter his plea at a hearing on December 8th. The FBI claims that Cogill posted 9 tracks from the then yet unreleased album on music blog Antiquiet.com. How Cogill, who apparently has no connection to the band, obtained the tracks has not been specified.
Cogill was arrested in Los Angeles in August and subsequently released on bail. The charges carried a potential penalty of more than three years in prison if convicted.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Craig Missakian declined to elaborate on the plea agreement. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
