A man accused of stealing more than $30,000 from his dead father’s social security benefits changed his plea today in federal court to guilty.

Court documents say over a span of nearly 3 years from August 2013 to January 2016, Nathan Yuen Grit Lum signed a check in his father’s name for more than $33,000 which he deposited into his own bank account.

In addition, Lum also failed to file his federal and state taxes for six years totaling more than $250,000.

He remains out on bail with sentencing scheduled for July.
