A former Fort Worth employee of a document shredding company who was accused of sharing bank records with thieves has pleaded guilty to fraud charges.

Patrick Doucet, 44, drove a truck for Cintas Document Management, an Ohio company that shreds documents for businesses, including banks and insurance companies.

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to fraudulent possession of identification, a second-degree felony.

He faces up to a $10,000 fine and 20 years in prison.

His sentencing is set for May 8.

Police searched his home in North Fort Worth last year.

According to the search warrant, the investigation started in Georgia when a woman was arrested and accused of writing fake checks in the name of a Bedford woman.

Investigators said the suspect implicated Doucet. It was unclear how the two knew each other.

Police said Doucet did not shred documents that were supposed to be destroyed and shared them with the Georgia woman and others.
