SHERMAN, Texas -

A prosecutor says country music star Randy Travis is expected to enter a guilty plea in a drunken-driving case in North Texas.

Grayson County District Attorney Joe Brown says details of the agreement will be released following Travis' court appearance Thursday in Sherman.

Brown says the 53-year-old singer will plead guilty to a misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Travis was naked when he was arrested following a single-vehicle accident Aug. 7 near Tioga, about 60 miles north of Dallas.

Authorities have said his blood-alcohol level was more than 0.15. The legal limit for driving is 0.08.

Travis' attorney, John Nix, says a sentence of probation is expected. Nix says Travis is "looking forward to putting this behind him."
