Neo-Nazi convicted of protestor death set to plead guilty on hate crimes

A self-described neo-Nazi, who was convicted of killing a woman when he rammed his car into a crowd protesting white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017, was expected on Wednesday to plead guilty in his federal hate crimes case.
James Fields, who previously pleaded not guilty to the federal charges, was scheduled for a change plea hearing on Wednesday afternoon in US District Court in Charlottesville, according to a court filing.
