Court-appointed attorneys for James wrote in a letter to the court last month that their client, who had earlier pleaded not guilty on two charges, “wishes to schedule a guilty plea to the superseding indictment,” CNN reported.
James originally pleaded not guilty to the charges of committing or attempting to commit an act of terrorism or other violence against a mass transportation system and discharging a firearm during a crime of violence.

In all, 29 people were injured in the incident during the morning rush-hour commute in April. James allegedly put on a gas mask while entering a train heading for the Sunset Park 36th Street station when he opened a canister from his bag. The suspect then withdrew a firearm and fired 33 times, striking multiple people in the car and on the platform, according to authorities.
