BATON ROUGE (AP) - A federal judge has scheduled an April 18 sentencing hearing for a Louisiana private investigator who pleaded guilty to misusing Donald Trump's Social Security number in repeated attempts to access the president's federal tax information before the 2016 election.

Jordan Hamlett faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison following his guilty plea in December. U.S. District Judge John deGravelles will sentence the 32-year-old Lafayette resident.

Authorities have said Hamlett failed in his attempts to get Trump's tax information through a U.S. Department of Education financial aid website. Hamlett used Trump's Social Security number and other personal information to open an online application for federal student aid. After obtaining a username and password, he tried to use an Internal Revenue Service data retrieval tool to obtain Trump's tax information.
