Feds Want To Keep Hecker In Jail
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Prosecutors want fallen Twin Cities auto mogul Denny Hecker to stay in jail because he is a flight risk and “an economic threat to the community.”
Prosecutors filed a motion in federal court Monday to keep Hecker in the Sherburne County Jail pending his sentencing for fraud and conspiracy. Hecker has been jailed since late October.
Hecker filed a motion last Friday asking to be released pending his sentencing.
But prosecutors say Hecker has no impulse control, which contributes to the likelihood he would try to flee.
Prosecutors also revealed they will ask for the maximum 10-year sentence.
A hearing on whether Hecker will be released is scheduled Tuesday.
