A former television news executive says he'll use the 47-thousand dollars he won on a game show to help pay court-ordered restitution stemming from securities fraud.

Scott Alan McDonald of Littleton pleaded guilty to felony theft in 2001.

He was sentenced to a community corrections program, and given 12 years to repay the money.

McDonald taped an appearance on "Wheel of Fortune" in August.

The show was broadcast nationwide on Wednesday.

He says he was never asked about his criminal history.

Denver district attorney's spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough says prosecutors are looking into whether they can claim his winnings to repay the victims.

McDonald says he's working hard to pay everyone back.
