Denny Hecker's wife released from corrections system

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The wife of convicted Twin Cities auto magnate Denny Hecker has been released from the federal corrections system.

Christi Rowan Hecker served a 12-month prison sentence for bank fraud and bankruptcy fraud. She was originally sentenced to serve 14 months but was released early after complying with federal prison guidelines.

Rowan Hecker served nearly 10 months in a federal women's prison in Greenville, Ill., before being transferred in November to a halfway house in the Twin Cities, so she could be near her teenage daughter.

A U.S. Bureau of Prisons spokesman tells the Star Tribune Rowan Hecker was then placed under home confinement before being released completely Tuesday.

Denny Hecker is currently serving a 10-year sentence for fraud and conspiring to defraud auto lenders out of millions of dollars.
