Va. man pleads guilty to impersonating fed

RICHMOND, Va. — A Petersburg man has pleaded guilty to impersonating a U.S. Department of Homeland Security agent.

Twenty-seven-year-old Joshua Brady also pleaded guilty to violating terms of his release in an earlier case involving the forgery of a federal judge’s signature.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Brady received a two-year sentence for the probation violation Monday after entering his plea. U.S. District Judge John A. Gibney Jr. gave Brady five years of supervised release for the impersonation charges.

Brady was accused of impersonating a Homeland Security officer to two hospitals in an unspecified scheme. He was charged in July.

In the earlier case, he pleaded guilty in May to forging a Richmond federal judge’s signature in an effort to get his cell phone service restored.
