NEW CITY, N.Y. (AP) — Stephen Baldwin is set to appear in New York court between appearances on "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" in hopes of getting past a state tax charge.

The youngest of the four acting Baldwin brothers is due Friday morning in Rockland County Court. He's accused of failing to file state income tax returns in 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Baldwin's lawyer has said he can avoid jail time under a tentative plea agreement. The attorney said Baldwin would have up to five years to pay back $350,000 in taxes and penalties.

When Baldwin was arrested in December, the district attorney said he could face up to four years in prison if convicted.

The 46-year-old Baldwin starred in 1995's "The Usual Suspects." He's a contestant on TV's "Apprentice" with Dennis Rodman and others.
