Sandra Merritt is planning to surrender to authorities.

An anti-abortion activists who was indicted by a Harris County grand jury for her role in an undercover Planned Parenthood video is expected to turn herself into authorities on Wednesday.

Sandra Merritt is planning to turn herself on a charge of Tampering with a Governmental Record. The other activist who was indicted in the case, David Daleiden, is expected to follow suit on Thursday.

Last month, a Harris County grand jury investigating an undercover video of Planned Parenthood found no wrongdoing by the organization, and instead decided to indict the activists involved in making the video, causing an uproar.

The grand jury studied the case alleging misconduct by a Planned Parenthood in Houston for more than two months and decided that no laws were broken. However, Daleiden and Merritt were charged for allegedly showing the Planned Parenthood clinic fake California driver's licenses while pretending to be from a research company called BioMax. An additional indictment for Prohibition of the Purchase and Sale of Human Organs has been issued for Daleiden.
