      LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 1-time sales manager for Humana has pleaded guilty to taking part in a bribery scheme that netted the players more than $2 million from a South Carolina company for steering insurance brokers their way.

      After paying $1 million in restitution and forfeited assets Tuesday, 56-year-old Glenn A. Fine entered the plea in U.S. District Court in Louisville, Ky.

      Fine and 48-year-old James Albert Wegner Jr., of New Port Richie, Fla., told prosecutors they took money from Cutler & Associates of Columbia, S.C., in exchange for the referrals.

      Wegner pleaded guilty in January.

      Cutler & Associates founder Shep Cutler and a business associate, Dan McNerney of Columbia, Mo., were named as participants in court proceedings. Neither has been charged. Attempts to reach both men were unsuccessful Tuesday.
