Former Iowa Co. Conservation Director Pleads Guilty

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Sentencing has been scheduled next month for a former Iowa county conservation director who pleaded guilty to stealing from the county.
   William Gerald Heber pleaded guilty last week to second-degree theft and felonious conduct in office. His sentencing is scheduled for June 27.
   Heber was hired in November 2007 to oversee Benton County's 10 parks. He was fired in November 2011 and arrested in August 2012.
   State auditors say Heber charged more than $2,700 worth of fuel for his personal truck to the county. Heber told investigators that the pickup the county provided had mechanical problems, so he drove his own.
   Auditors say Heber was not authorized to charge fuel for his personal vehicle to the county. The auditors identified 45 improper fuel purchases in 2010 and 2011
