LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A man accused of conspiring to steal money from UMC has pleaded guilty Friday.

40-year-old Rodolfo "Rudy" Reyes Mata of San Antonio, Texas was re-arraigned in Lubbock federal court. He appeared before U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings and pleaded guilty to one count of mail fraud and aiding and abetting.

Thursday, Mata pleaded not guilty to these charges.

Mata will remain on bond. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution.  Further sentencing is still to come.

Mata is accused of submitting fake invoices to UMC. Investigators say he and former UMC employee Greg Bruce defrauded the hospital out of more than $680,000.

Bruce pleaded guilty to the same charges. Both cases are being investigated by the FBI.
