OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A former ConAgra sales executive has been sentenced in Omaha to 41 months for wire fraud.

Prosecutors say 44-year-old Donald Wilson, of Bothell, Washington, was sentenced on Monday. He must serve three years of supervised release after he leaves prison and must make restitution of nearly $606,000.

Wilson had pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court in Omaha, where ConAgra is headquartered. Prosecutors say Wilson used 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.
