Juan-Carlos Cruz -- I'm Not Guilty

5/17/2010 10:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Juan-Carlos Cruz plans to plead not guilty at his arraignment -- which may or may not take place this morning.

Juan-Carlos Cruz

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ Cruz -- the Food Network chef accused of trying to hire a few homeless guys to kill his wife -- may ask for a continuance at this morning's scheduled arraignment.

But ... no matter when the hearing goes down, we're told Cruz will plead not guilty.

TMZ broke the story ... the three homeless men whom Cruz alleged approached to slit his wife's throat secretly worked with Santa Monica cops and one of the meetings between Cruz and the men was audio and videotaped.

As for the $5,000,000 bail, we're told Cruz doesn't have the money and won't be posting it any time soon.

Sure you aren't guilty, buddy. Now hurry up and get out of jail so I can buy that prime real estate land in the California desert.

$5,000,000 bail F*cking insane! He didn't kill her... If he jumped bail would it really take the $5,000,000 to track him down?

He said he needs more Dill, not kill! He's a chef. Or is he a cook?

Did this guy REALLY think he would get away with muder? Wow what an
idiot! With all of the up-to-date crime technology for illegal activity it's pretty tough to get away with anything these days! If
this were 100 years ago, this hoochy Mexicano, may have and that is
still a BIG "may have" got away with this heinous crime!
