Richard's attorney announced earlier today that Richard will plead guilty tomorrow to attempting to influence a public servant -- a felony -- and Mayumi will plead guilty to false reporting to authorities -- a misdemeanor.

The lawyer also said the Heenes aren't expected to do jail time.

UPDATE: Richard has been released. We're told Mayumi will not be booked because her charge is a misdemeanor.
