Casper, WY (AP) - A Natrona County Juvenile Detention Center employee accused of altering detainee records has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports Dwight Ellias Matthews entered his plea Wednesday in 7th District Court.

Matthews had been charged with felonies for allegedly using his supervisor's log to access the center's computers from home to change the names of three inmates to profanities. One felony charge will be deferred if Matthews has no previous felony convictions. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of a crime against intellectual property/modifying data.

According to court documents, Matthews told Natrona County Sheriff's officers he had problems with a supervisor.

Matthews' deal also calls for 20 days in jail, along with one to five years probation. Sentencing will be scheduled at a later date.
