DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A man facing federal firearms charges in Iowa
who attempted to escape by fleeing to Cuba has entered plea
agreements with U.S. prosecutors.

Court records say Shawn Michael Wegmann signed plea agreements last week
for failure to appear and for four firearms counts. He faces up to 45
years in .

Wegmann admits to stealing more than 30 guns in burglaries last year in
Iowa and Illinois. He had previous felony convictions and was barred
from possessing guns.

He failed to appear in court for a plea agreement hearing in October. He
was found a week later in Havana, Cuba. The U.S. Marshals Service says
he was the first fugitive to be returned to the U.S. by the Cuban
government since diplomatic relations began a year ago.
