A change-of-plea hearing is scheduled Friday for an Arizona legislator charged in a corruption case.

Rep. Ben Arredondo previously pleaded not guilty to federal charges of bribery and other crimes.

The Tempe Democrat's lawyer did not immediately return a call for comment, but a federal court docket entry says a magistrate will hold the change-of-plea hearing Friday morning.

An indictment charged Arredondo with soliciting and accepting sports and charity event tickets from FBI undercover agents and with disclosing confidential information while he was a Tempe City Council member.

The scheduling of the change-of-plea hearing was reported first by the Arizona Capitol Times.

Arredondo is not running for re-election.
