TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A former federal agent accused of selling drugs and planting evidence on suspects has pleaded guilty to a drug charge in federal court in Tulsa.

Former Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives special agent Brandon Jay McFadden entered the plea Thursday to conspiring to distribute more than 50 grams of methamphetamine.

Initially indicted on four drug and money laundering charges, the 38-year-old McFadden pleaded guilty to the single count. He faces between five and 40 years in prison.

As part of his plea, he acknowledged conspiring with a Tulsa police officer to fabricate a drug deal involving two people.

McFadden's attorney, Neal Kirkpatrick, says his client is cooperating with the prosecution of additional cases.
