MADISON, Neb. (AP) - A former zoning administrator for Madison and Pierce counties has taken a deal and pleaded guilty to a lesser theft charge.

Online court records say 55-year-old John Johnson was convicted on Tuesday of misdemeanor theft. He’d been charged with a felony. Prosecutors say Johnson charged more than $500 in gasoline to Madison County for use in his personal vehicle.

He’s scheduled for sentencing on May 21.

Johnson, of Madison, had served 12 years as zoning administrator for both counties before resigning last summer.
