CLEAR LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A man accused of cheating in a Clear Lake bass fishing contest has pleaded guilty to felony second-degree theft.

Twenty-five-year-old Jason F. Schuttler of Manly received a deferred judgment and two years of probation on Monday. The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (http://bit.ly/1K7bHOF ) reports court documents say Schuttler was ordered to pay $1,606 in restitution, $100 in costs and a $125 surcharge.

Prosecutors say Schuttler and 23-year-old Aaron Lauber of Clear Lake caught some of the 50 fish they turned in at the Yellow Bass Bonanza fishing tournament in February outside of tournament hours.

According to court documents, a plea hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 8 for Lauber.
