Ex-New Orleans cop pleads guilty in theft from nonprofit

A former New Orleans police detective has pleaded guilty to conspiring to steal funds from a nonprofit group that assists homeless families.

Federal prosecutors say 36-year-old Tiwana Alexander resigned from the department on the eve of her guilty plea Friday to a conspiracy charge.

Alexander faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
