Radio-Canada is reporting that former Montreal police investigator Benoît Roberge will plead guilty to some, if not all, of the criminal charges against him at his scheduled court appearance this morning.

The former sergeant-detective, who was assigned specifically to investigate organized crime and who is facing accusations of selling sensitive police information to the Hells Angels, was charged with four crimes soon after his October arrest: two counts of gangsterism, one count of obstruction of justice and one count of breach of trust.

Roberge, 50, waived his right to a preliminary hearing in late February.

He also gave up the option of being tried by a jury, instead choosing to present his case in front of a single judge.
