NELIGH, Neb. (AP) - A county supervisor in northeast Nebraska has been convicted of theft.

Sixty-three-year-old Harlan Brandt, of Oakdale, had been charged with felony theft. Prosecutors say a State Patrol investigation found that Brandt had used a county credit card to buy gas for his personal use over an almost three-year period.

Court records say he pleaded no contest and was convicted of misdemeanor theft after a prosecutor lowered the charge. He’s agreed to pay back about $2,600 to the county.

Brandt is scheduled to be sentenced on May 27.
