A glamorous pair of accused grifters are due in court in Philadelphia next month on charges stemming from a yearlong crime spree.

A lawyer says former Drexel University student Jocelyn Kirsch will plead guilty to identity-theft and fraud charges on June 5.

Lawyer Ronald Greenblatt told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the 22-year-old Kirsch is ready to pay the price for the crimes.

He ex-boyfriend, 25-year-old University of Pennsylvania graduate Edward Anderton, is scheduled for a plea hearing on June 2.

Police say the couple obtained nearly $120,000 in goods and services by stealing credit from friends and neighbors.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Meehan plans to seek five-year prison terms for each.
