OREM, Utah — A former associate dean from Utah Valley University pleads guilty to communications fraud one week after his wife was sentenced to county jail for stealing more than $380,000 from the university.

The Daily Herald reported Tuesday that 47-year-old Phil Clegg accepted a plea deal in exchange for a guilty plea to two felony counts and avoid serving zero to five years in prison for each charge. Prosecutors say Clegg was ordered to pay $64,000 in restitution and complete 120 hours of community service.

Authorities say Clegg and his wife Jennifer Clegg used the money to pay for travel expenses and a private theater business.
