Guccifer, accused of hacking Bush accounts, to plead guilty

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) -- The Romanian hacker known as Guccifer, who is charged with breaking into computer accounts of the Bush family and others, is scheduled to plead guilty to federal charges.

Court records indicate that a change-of-plea hearing is scheduled Wednesday at federal court in Alexandria for 44-year-old Marcel Lazar. He pleaded not guilty last month to charges including cyberstalking, unauthorized access to computers and obstruction of justice.

The court records do not indicate exactly which charges Lazar will plead to.

Lazar is best known for alleged hacks into accounts held by the Bushes that revealed private family photos and paintings connected to former presidents George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

Lazar also made news earlier this month with unsubstantiated claims he hacked into Hillary Clinton's private email server.
