STOW, Ohio (AP) — The attorney for an Ohio man charged with 10 fraud-related counts says her client will plead guilty to all the charges.

Prosecutors say Thomas Steiger of Snow in suburban Akron stole equipment that he ordered for the company where he works and sold it for profit.

The 45-year-old's attorney, Debra Hughes, said Saturday that Steiger helped investigators by admitting to his crime and intends to plead guilty to all the charges at a court hearing Monday.

She says Steiger is "shaken and remorseful."

Prosecutors said Friday that Steiger worked as a facility manager at a plant near Cleveland that provides parts to Ford Motor Company and that he ordered equipment that neither his company nor Ford needed, such as infrared cameras.

Prosecutors say he then sold the items for profit, making about $744,000.
