OMAHA, Nebraska — A former ConAgra sales executive is scheduled to be sentenced on Jan. 12 in Omaha for wire fraud.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (http://bit.ly/ZGCyLL ) that Donald Wilson pleaded guilty on Monday in U.S. District Court in Omaha, where ConAgra is headquartered. Wilson originally pleaded not guilty to eight counts of wire fraud or aiding and abetting wire fraud.

Wilson was accused of using nearly $606,000 from his company's marketing budget to help pay personal expenses and expenses for a professional softball team he helped sponsor.

Authorities say that from 2006 through April 2012 Wilson worked in Bothell, Washington, and supervised four regional managers. ConAgra provided him with a marketing budget, but he was not allowed to use it for personal or unapproved expenses.
