A second former New Orleans officer charged in an alleged conspiracy to cover up a deadly police shooting of unarmed residents after Hurricane Katrina has pleaded guilty.
Jeffrey Lehrmann pleaded guilty to charges of misprision of a felony, which means he had knowledge of a crime and didn't report it.
The shootings on the Danziger Bridge killed two people and wounded four others less than a week after Hurricane Katrina and led to an investigation by the Justice Department.
Lehrmann left the New Orleans Police Department in 2006 and is a special agent at the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Phoenix.
Sentencing has been set for June 10.
