A federal court docket shows Jesus "Chuy" Labra will change his plea next Thursday. A filing Wednesday does not say on which charges. His attorneys and a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney's office did not respond to messages Thursday.

According to his 2003 indictment, he participated in major decisions of the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix cartel and tapped extensive connections with Colombian cocaine traffickers.
