Milwaukee, Wisc. — A man born in Mexico who assumed a dead relative's identity and became a Milwaukee police officer has agreed to plead guilty to a federal felony, according to court documents filed Friday.

Oscar Ayala-Cornejo, 24, will plead guilty to falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen, according to an agreement filed Friday.

Because of the plea, Ayala-Cornejo faces six to 12 months' incarceration, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Mel Johnson, the prosecutor in the case. The U.S. attorney's office is recommending a sentence on the low side of that range, the document says. Ayala-Cornejo has agreed to leave the United States. He is a Mexican citizen.
