Kermit Gosnell, the abortion doctor now serving life in prison for killing babies born alive at his clinic, is expected to plead guilty to federal drug charges.

Prosecutors say the 72-year-old wrote prescriptions for painkillers to addicts and drug dealers. A hearing in federal court is set for June 6th.

The plea would resolve the last of the criminal charges against Gosnell.
