Attorneys for former Orange County Sheriff Michael Carona plan to argue before a federal judge Friday to get some of the charges against him dropped.They claim that four of the ten charges against Carona, his wife and reported mistress, should be tossed because they fail to allege a specific offense.

The three are charged with conspiring to take cash and gifts in exchange for favors. Prosecutors say the charges are "logically related" to show a bribery scheme.
