Fruit of the Loom former director pleads guilty

A federal prosecutor said a Bowling Green, Ky., man has pleaded guilty to two counts of money laundering.

Kalen Watkins was environmental director for Fruit of the Loom in Bowling Green. He also pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the company.

U.S. Attorney David Huber said Watkins still faces two counts of money laundering and one of obstructing justice by creating false documents in response to a grand jury subpoena.

Prosecutors said the loss to Fruit of the Loom amounted to about a million dollars.

Watkins and co-defendants Kenneth Harris of Texas and Curtis Hopkins of Corbin, will be tried in that case on August 27, 2007.
