If a defendant wants to enter a plea, they must notify the court of the plea before that date. 

Kenneth Butler agreed to a plea date for May 14. This gives him the possibility to enter a plea deal with the government on that day. 

Butler could be the first of the four to enter a plea deal with the government. No information has been released about the details of the possible deal.

Trial dates were also announced for September 4 to September 11 if each defendant fails to enter plea deals.
