WASHINGTON (AP) - Prosecutors say a former background investigator for the U.S. Office of Personnel Management has pleaded guilty to falsifying work on background investigations of federal employees and contractors.

Prosecutors say Gina Adams of Glen Burnie, Maryland, pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court in Washington to a charge of making a false statement. Prosecutors say that in at least 10 reports on background investigations, Adams said she had interviewed a source or reviewed a record when she had not. Prosecutors say her false representations have required officials to reopen numerous background investigations.

Adams is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 18. She faces up to five years in prison.

A telephone message left for Adams’ attorney was not immediately returned Thursday.
