Former Los Angeles County Lee Baca faces six months in prison after pleading guilty to a single felony charge of lying to investigators.

Baca, 73, told investigators that he wasn’t aware that his deputies planned to harass a female FBI agent in 2011 who was looking into whispers of civil rights violations and corruption inside the county jail system reports the New York Daily News.

The Daily News reports:

The plea deal calls for a maximum of six months behind bars, but the actual sentence will be determined by a federal judge, according to court filings obtained by the Daily News.

Under his plea agreement, Baca now admits he secretly directed deputies to “isolate” an inmate suspected of being an FBI informant and “do everything but put handcuffs” on the FBI agent sniffing around his jails.

As a result, two deputies approached the agent outside her home on September 26, 2011, and threatened her with arrest, prosecutors said.

The paper adds that Baca oversaw the actions of his staff in hopes to head off the FBI’s investigation, which has yielded eight convictions of former LAPD deputies.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is the nation’s largest urban jail system and has been rocked by scandal for years. Baca retired from his post in 2014 at the height of the FBI’s investigation.
