Investigator Pleads Guilty in HP Probe

Federal prosecutors scored their first victory in the investigation of Hewlett-Packard Co.'s ill-fated boardroom spying probe Friday, when a low-level private investigator pleaded guilty to identity theft and conspiracy charges.

Bryan Wagner, 29, of Littleton, Colo., pleaded guilty to the two felony counts during his initial appearance in San Jose federal court. As part of the plea deal, Wagner admitted to illegally obtaining Social Security numbers for at least two journalists, as well as two former HP directors and their family members.

His lawyer said Wagner will testify for the prosecution as it pursues other people tied to the scandal.

Wagner's sentencing was set for June 20. There was no sentencing agreement included in the plea deal.
