NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former employee of computer giant Dell has pleaded guilty to federal fraud and conspiracy charges.
At a plea hearing in federal court in Nashville, Tenn., Friday, 39-year-old Herbie Morrow of Richmond Heights, Mo., admitted to conspiring with another former Dell employee to defraud Dell by using corporate computers to create fraudulent discounts.
