(Harrisburg) --  A midstate lawyer who represented former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky at his child-sex abuse trial is set to plead guilty in a case charging him with attempting to evade federal income taxes from 2006 to 2010. 

Online records show 42-year-old Karl Rominger is scheduled to plead guilty this afternoon before a federal judge in Harrisburg. 

Rominger was charged last month with attempted tax evasion and failing to file a 2012 return. 

He is also awaiting sentencing in August after pleading guilty in Cumberland County in May to stealing $767,000 in client funds.  

Prosecutors say he spent the money on gambling and other interests.  
 Rominger's lawyer says his client is in treatment for compulsive gambling and has a realistic restitution plan.  
     Sandusky is his child molestation conviction and sentence.
