A Maryland jail worker accused of failing to seek medical attention for an inmate found hanging by a sheet while in custody pleaded guilty in the case.

Anthony McIntosh, 49, pleaded guilty Friday to falsification of records in a federal investigation. The plea does not implicate McIntosh in white's death.

McIntosh was working at the Prince George's County jail in June 2008 when he found 19-year-old Ronnie White hanging from a sheet in his cell. White had been charged with running over and killing a county police officer, Richard Findley, with a stolen car.

White's death initially was ruled a homicide but later a possible suicide.

McIntosh admitted he lied about being the first guard to find White dead, News4 Prince George's County Bureau Chief Tracee Wilkins reported.

McIntosh's trial was scheduled for next week. U.S. District Judge Alexander Williams Jr. said he faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
