OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The former executive director of an Oklahoma City-based child care organization has pleaded no contest to one count of embezzlement.

Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s office says the plea was entered Wednesday by 62-year-old Wayne Royce Junghanns. Junghanns received a 10-year deferred sentence and was ordered to pay $26,723 in restitution. A no contest plea has the same effect as a guilty plea but is not an admission of guilt.

Junghanns was charged with fraudulently submitting reimbursement claims to the nonprofit Rainbow Fleet, Inc. Prosecutors say the child care resource and referral company discovered the falsified requests and alerted the attorney general.

Junghanns also allegedly submitted a falsified computer generated document, claiming that he had purchased $933 in items from the National Association for Family Child Care.
