Former Oklahoma State coach Sean Sutton says he will plead guilty to felony charges accusing him of illegally obtaining prescription drugs.

Sutton said Friday he made a mistake and hopes to atone for it
by educating others about the dangers of addiction. He will plead
guilty plea later Friday, then wait for a judge to decide his fate.

Sutton was charged with four felonies after being arrested in
February. Authorities accused him of picking up a shipment of
painkillers under another person's name.

Sutton says he spent 115 days in a rehabilitation program in
Utah and will continue to keep in touch with his support group. The
son of former Oklahoma State coach Eddie Sutton says he hopes one
day to return to coaching but it is not his top priority.
