Former Gopher Ticketing Director Accused in Siphoning Scheme
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The attorney for a former University of Minnesota ticketing director charged with fraud says the defendant intends to plead guilty to charges and make restitution.
Thirty-seven-year-old Brent Holck, of Maple Grove, is accused of siphoning money from football, hockey and basketball ticket orders from April 2012 to January 2017. Holck is charged with wire fraud in federal court.
Defense attorney Peter Wold and prosecutors have not revealed the amount of money involved. The charging document lists a single fraudulent ticket transaction three years into his scheme resulting in Holck receiving $1,500.
Holck was fired in February 2017 after an internal audit by the university discovered discrepancies in ticket transaction records.
