A Wayne County, Nebraska Commissioner has been fined $1,000 after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of theft and misconduct, but Kelvin Wurdeman is fighting an effort to recall him from office.
Prosecutors say Wurdeman, who is in the middle of his fourth term in office, stole and sold a truckload of publicly owned scrap metal.
Wayne County residents will vote on November 20th whether to recall him from 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.
