CHARLESTON, West Virginia — A Charleston man has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of aggravated identity theft.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin says 45-year-old Troy Lawrence admitted that he used a dead person's name and driver's license to purchase pseudoephedrine from a Charleston Rite Aid store.

Lawrence faces a mandatory two years' imprisonment when he is sentenced on Nov. 13.

The case was investigated by the West Virginia State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
