    Katherine Bowyer Gallagher has pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possession of stolen property. The Marin Independent Journal reports sentencing for the 31-year-old is May 15.

    Lewis was identified by the California Highway Patrol as Hugh Anthony Cregg III. The 62-year-old was staying at a Holiday Inn Express in Mill Valley on Feb. 21 when the Toyota Corolla he rented was stolen with his laptop inside.

    Lewis says he had left the car idling to go into the hotel for a receipt. Authorities say a CHP officer later spotted Gallagher in the stolen vehicle.

    Lewis is the frontman of Huey Lewis and the News.
