Girlfriend Of Fallen Auto Mogul To Remain Jailed
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The girlfriend of convicted auto mogul Dennis Hecker has waived her detention hearing and will remain behind bars.
Christi Rowan will stay in the Sherburne County jailed until she’s sentenced next week. Rowan’s detention hearing was scheduled Wednesday in federal court.
She was arrested a week ago after visiting Hecker in jail.
Rowan violated terms of her release from custody by withdrawing thousands of dollars from Hecker’s bank account and cashing dividend checks from Hecker’s stocks.
Hecker is serving a 10-year federal prison sentence for conspiracy and bankruptcy fraud.
