Guns N’ Roses Leaker to Plead Guilty


While most Guns N’ Roses fans are preparing for the long-awaited release of Chinese Democracy, one in particular is potentially gearing up for jail. Los Angeles blogger Kevin Cogill, 27, who leaked nine tracks from the 15-year-in-the-making record to, has agreed to plea guilty to one misdemeanor count of federal copyright infringement, reports.

Chinese Democracy will finally be available for purchase exclusively via Best Buy November 23.

Details regarding the plea deal have yet to be revealed. But when he was arrested in August by the FBI, authorities said Cogill faced up three years in prison if convicted.

The blogger will enter his plea in a hearing Dec. 8.

Worst possible sentence: A clerk position at Best Buy the day of the album’s release.
