A former Prince George's County corrections officer facing federal charges stemming from the death of a detainee who had been accused of killing a county police officer pleaded guilty Friday.

Anthony McIntosh pleaded guilty to one count of falsifying records. He pleaded not guilty to two other charges. Those two charges were dropped.

He was scheduled to go to trial next week in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt.

McIntosh was arrested in January 2012 and accused of failing to alert emergency workers after finding an inmate unresponsive in his cell in June 2008.

An indictment unsealed last year charges McIntosh with a federal civil rights violation and with two counts of destroying or falsifying records in a federal investigation.

Ronnie White was found dead in his jail cell days after he was arrested in the hit-and-run death of Cpl. Richard Findley.

The state medical examiner had ruled the 19-year-old was strangled and declared the death a homicide Court records don't show an attorney for McIntosh.
