A former partner in a Super 8 motel franchise has pleaded guilty to federal charges of wire fraud and filing a false tax return. The Oregon Department of Justice says 62-year-old Kenneth Johnson ran the Central Point motel's daily operations from 2005 until 2011 and reported financial figures to co-partners in Montana. The agency says Johnson provided false information to the partners and the scheme diverted almost $500,000 from the motel to his personal use. Johnson hired his girlfriend, Diana Arredondo, as motel manager and she pleaded guilty to filing a false tax return in connection with the case. A Medford judge is scheduled to sentence Johnson and Arredondo in February.
