GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — A former U.S. Navy worker accused of stealing government funds and conspiring to submit false claims to the government has agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge.

The Sun Herald reports that federal court records show Eduardo Magana of LaMesa, Calif., has notified the court of his intent to accept a plea on a misdemeanor and be prosecuted in the Southern District of California.

A two-count indictment returned by a grand jury in June alleged Magana embezzled money through cash advances and purchases on a government credit card and through fraudulent travel vouchers while assigned to work at the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport.

A plea date in California has not been set yet.
