NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former employee of computer giant Dell has pleaded guilty to federal fraud and conspiracy charges.

At a plea hearing in federal court in Nashville, Tenn., Friday, 39-year-old Herbie Morrow of Richmond Heights, Mo., admitted to conspiring with another former Dell employee to defraud Dell by using corporate computers to create fraudulent discounts. Morrow also acknowledged conspiring to access Dell account websites in order to use the fraudulent discounts to purchase more than $293,000 worth of Dell merchandise, including laptop computers and computer accessories, at substantially reduced prices or for free.

Another man, 31-year-old Marcus Culver of Nashville, Tenn., is awaiting trial on similar charges.

U.S. District Court Chief Judge William J. Haynes, Jr. scheduled the sentencing for Morrow, a former Tennessee resident, June 9.
