4 Charged in Incident at Office of Senator

NEW ORLEANS — The conservative activist who in January had been accused of tampering with the telephone system of Senator Mary L. Landrieu — a felony — will instead face only misdemeanor charges in the case, federal prosecutors said Friday.

The charges against the activist, James O’Keefe III, and three other men were made public in a bill of information, which often indicates that a plea deal has been made.

The new charge of entering the senator’s office on false pretenses comes with a maximum of six months in prison and a fine of $5,000. The original felony charges could have resulted in up to 10 years of prison time.
