Denver (AP) Colorado Attorney General John Suthers says a man accused of working as a paramedic for 17 months without proper training or certification has pleaded guilty to a felony criminal impersonation charge.

Forty-one-year-old Todd Teel entered his plea this week in Denver District Court.

Prosecutors say he provided American medical response of Denver a falsified certificate saying he had received the required training to be a paramedic
.
The complaint, filed in October, alleged that Teel then worked as a paramedic in AMR Ambulances between June 2006 and December 2007.

Teel faces up to 1 1/2 years in prison and $100,000 in fines when he is sentenced March 6.

Suthers’ office says Teel left AMR in December 2007 and is living in Wyoming. He is free on a $5,000 bond.
