Federal prosecutors say a 25-year old New Bedford man has agreed to plead guilty in a computer hacking case in which he’s accused of breaking into police records, credit card accounts and a local college, where he allegedly altered his grades.

Prosecutors announced the charges Monday against Cameron Lacroix and said he agreed to plead guilty to two counts of computer intrusion and one count of access device fraud. If a judge approves the deal he would face four years in prison.

Lacroix allegedly changed his grades along with those of two others at Bristol County Community College. The school says it has changed its security measures.

Prosecutors said Lacroix repeatedly broke into law enforcement records, including arrest warrants and sex offender information. They say he also stole credit card information for more than 14,000 accounts.
