White House Intruder Pleads Guilty

The man who scaled a White House fence and ran inside the executive mansion in a stunning security breach that shook the Secret Service has agreed to plead guilty to two charges in the incident. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia said Omar Gonzalez, 43, on Friday pleaded guilty to one count each of unlawfully entering a restricted building or grounds while carrying a weapon and assaulting, resisting, or impeding certain officers or employees. A Secret Service review has detailed a string of failures in the incident, and the breach led in part to the resignation of Secret Service Director Julia Pierson.
