BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - A man alleged to have stolen $150,000
while using the credit information of at least 30 current or
retired Baton Rouge police officers has pleaded guilty to
aggravated identity theft.
In a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, 48-year-old Alton
K. Davis, of Baton Rouge, admitted Tuesday to crimes that would
limit his prison term to seven years or less.
Davis confirmed for Chief U.S. District Judge Ralph E. Tyson
that he signed a plea agreement in which he admitted he purchased a
computer printout from an unidentified person.
Davis also admitted he used those names and numbers from the
printout to purchase items that were billed to those other people.
Tyson did not immediately schedule a
sentencing hearing for Davis, who remains in federal custody.
