GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A Gulfport man indicted on a federal charge accusing him of being an impostor when he used a Puerto Rican man’s identity for more than 10 years has informed the court of his intent to plead guilty in the case.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1MmaEL2) Mateo Pascual Juan Francisco is set to enter the plea Aug. 6.

According to court documents, Francisco purchased ID cars in the Puerto Rican’s man name in Colorado and New Mexico and tried to get a Mississippi driver’s license in Biloxi on Nov. 1, 2013.

The name of the man Francisco was impersonating had been listed on national law enforcement alerts. The alert was activated when Francisco tried to get a license.

He was indicted on charges of aggravated identity theft and false representation of U.S. citizenship.
