ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Federal officials say a certified public accountant from New Mexico has admitted to making fake documents using U.S. Department of Treasury names and symbols.

Prosecutors said Monday that 64-year-old James Vaughn of Albuquerque pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for the offense.

Vaughn is expected to be sentenced to one year of probation.

Prosecutors say Vaughn in 2013 provided a fake document to a client, who asked him for proof that he had resolved a federal tax lien.

Rather than resolving the lien, prosecutors say Vaughn provided the client with fake treasury documents.
