Suspended Luzerne County Probation official Sandra Brulo has agreed to plead guilty to a felony obstruction of justice charge, federal officials say.

Brulo also agreed to cooperate with federal officials in the public corruption probe, officials said.

Brulo, the county’s probation forensic program deputy director, was charged Feb. 20 with altering a juvenile court file with the intent to impair the file’s integrity for use in federal proceedings, officials said.

She has agreed to waive indictment and plead guilty, officials said. Brulo faces a maximum of 20 years in prison, up to $250,000 in fines and up to three years of supervised release, officials said.
