BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A South Dakota man has pleaded guilty in a cattle theft case in North Dakota.

The North Dakota Stockmen’s Association says Jeffrey Fix, of Watertown, South Dakota was accused of failing to pay a Fordville family for three purebred cows and a purebred bull in 2015. He faced a felony theft charge because the value of the animals surpassed $10,000.

Court documents show Fix pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors earlier this month and was ordered to pay nearly $30,000 in restitution to Jallo Angus Ranch. If he doesn’t make monthly payments, he’ll go to prison for three years.

Fix also is barred from the livestock industry for five years.
