KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A former Sprint Nextel employee has
admitted she took part in what federal prosecutors say was a
conspiracy to defraud the company.

Leslie Ann Genova pleaded guilty Tuesday to providing inside
information to a software consultant that was negotiating a
contract with Sprint.

The consultant, called Four Corners Telecommunications Corp., sought a deal worth $4 million to $6 million for a network management system at the Overland Park-based Sprint.

Another now-former Sprint employee, Mary Elizabeth Drew, offered to help Four Corners in the negotiations, later bringing in Genova. The two received $37,500 for their help, with $19,000 going to Genova.

Drew pleaded guilty last year to wire fraud. Another co-defendant, William Collum, pleaded guilty last week.
