A rural Nebraska man has pleaded guilty to what used to be known commonly as cattle rustling.
Duane Bolton, who lives near Brownlee in north-central Nebraska, pleaded guilty to misbranding and trying to sell someone else's livestock.
Bolton admitted to those two felonies last month in exchange for prosecutors agreeing to drop a third charge. When Bolton is sentenced Feb. 10, prosecutors will recommend a sentence of five years' probation.
Prosecutors say Bolton misbranded the livestock between June 2007 and April 2011.
