A December sentencing has been scheduled for a Fremont man convicted in an insurance fraud case.
The Fremont Tribune says 24-year-old Christopher Naber conspired to have his pickup burned. He pleaded no contest to the felony charge and to a misdemeanor for contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Naber told investigators that he couldn't afford the payments on his truck but wanted to protect his credit rating. Prosecutors say Naber gave two accomplices his truck keys so they could drive it away and get rid of it. He reported to police on Aug. 28 last year that the pickup had been stolen and later filed an insurance report.
The fire-damaged truck was found near a pond in Douglas County.
Naber is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 9.
