A county commissioner from northeast Nebraska has been convicted of misconduct for selling a truckload of county scrap metal.

Attorney General Jon Bruning says Wayne County Commissioner Kelvin Wurdeman pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of theft and misconduct.

Bruning says the Nebraska State Patrol determined that Wurdeman accepted a check made out to his son in exchange for the load of scrap metal.

Prosecutors say Wurdeman forged his son's signature to cash the check.

Wurdeman is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 5.
