A Maryland man who briefly worked as a D.C. police officer before his arrest in May pleaded guilty Thursday in Pittsburgh federal court to helping launder money from a local drug ring.

Jared Weinberg of Elkridge, Md., was a Baltimore gym lifeguard when he became one of at least 13 people who allowed Damon L. Collins of Antioch, Calif., to use his bank account to launder money he made supplying cocaine to Pittsburgh drug dealers, prosecutors say.

Collins is facing trial in September on drug conspiracy and money laundering conspiracy charges. U.S. District Judge David Cercone scheduled Weinberg's sentencing for Dec. 13.
