CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Court records say a man facing federal theft charges related to a data breach at the University of Northern Iowa intends to plead guilty.

Forty-five-year-old Bernard Ogie Oretekor has been charged with theft of government property and aggravated identity theft.

Recently filed court documents say he intends to plead guilty to the Iowa charges and has consented to transferring the Iowa charges to federal court in California. Authorities linked Oretekor to the Iowa data theft after seizing his computers in 2014 in connection with a separate investigation in California.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (https://bit.ly/1VC8xUD ) that federal authorities in Tennessee and Michigan also plan to file charges against Oretekor.
