The self-proclaimed "Codfather" is scheduled to plead guilty next week to evading federal fishing quotas and smuggling profits to Portugal.

The U.S. Attorney's Office announced today that 64-year-old Carlos Rafael of Dartmouth, owner of Carlos Seafood, Inc., will appear in federal court March 16 to enter a guilty plea. Rafael was indicted on one count of conspiring to falsify reports submitted to the federal government, 25 counts of submitting falsified records and one count of bulk cash smuggling.

Antonio Freitas, a sheriff's deputy with the Bristol County Sheriff's Office, was also indicted for helping Rafael smuggle cash to Portugal. His case is still ongoing in federal court.
