A northeast Nebraska county commissioner has been fined $1,000 for charges of theft and misconduct, but Kelvin Wurdenman is fighting an effort to recall him from office.

Wurdenman was sentenced last week on two misdemeanor charges that he pleaded no contest to.

Prosecutors say Wurdeman stole and sold a truckload of publicly owned scrap metal.

Wayne County voters will have the chance to vote whether to recall Wurdeman from office on Nov. 20. He is in the middle of his fourth term in office.

The recall petition accuses Wurdeman of removing some dirt from a landowner's field without permission and using it to address a nearby road problem. Wurdeman says he paid the landowner $150 for the dirt to resolve the issue.
