FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - A former school band director is facing a minimum of two years in federal prison after pleading guilty to identity theft and other charges.

Federal prosecutors say 27-year-old Delvis Demaine Rogers also agreed to pay restitution to the government of more than $129,000. Court documents show Rogers had thousands of stolen personal identities in his Hollywood apartment when authorities conducted a search in January 2014.

Rogers admitted in his plea filing hundreds of fraudulent income tax returns using the identities.

Rogers was band director at an Opa-Locka school when investigators searched his apartment. Before that he was an assistant band director at a Plantation high school.

Sentencing is set for Oct. 23. Rogers faces a mandatory term of two years in prison, with a possible additional 10-year term.
