Judge refuses to spring Hecker from jail,[url=http://bestsoccercleatsonlinestore.blogspot.com/][b]best soccer cleats[/b][/url]
Denny Hecker will remain in jail until he is sentenced early next year on the bankruptcy and fraud charges to which he has pleaded guilty, a federal judge ruled Friday. District Judge Michael Davis.
Friday's court orders culminated a tumultuous week for Hecker, his attorneys and the judge. A hearing Monday that began on the issue of Hecker's legal representation ended with his abrupt incarceration after Davis became frustrated with Hecker's testimony. On Wednesday, a four-hour hearing focused on the bankrupt Hecker's $200,000 spending spree from June through September.
Davis' ruling on Friday squelched efforts by Hecker's public defenders to get him released for three days so he could help them find the receipts,[url=http://cheapsoccershoesoutlet.blogspot.com/][b]http://cheapsoccershoesoutlet.blogspot.com/[/b][/url], bills and other accounting records to document the money that he'd spent.
Before leaving the chambers Friday,[url=http://duveticaitaly.albirank.net/][b]Duvetica Outlet[/b][/url], Davis turned and said: "I guess I won't be seeing you for a while, Mr. Hecker."
The 58-year-old Hecker faces up to 10 years in prison for fraud and conspiracy charges.
Davis demanded better answers from the bankrupt tycoon about how he secretly obtained and illegally spent $200,[url=http://parajumperssale.webmium.com/][b]Parajumpers Jackets On Sale[/b][/url],000 in insurance,[url=http://www.duveticajacketsjp.com/][b]デュベティカ 激安[/b][/url], 401(k) and bankruptcy settlement monies in just three months without informing the bankruptcy court or prosecutors.
Davis noted Hecker's "history of hiding and having money come forth that we don't know about" and scolded him about his "background and the things that you have done in the last year or two."
Hecker had no apparent reaction to the news that his incarceration was now permanent as he stood before the judge,[url=http://duveticaitaly.albirank.net/][b]DUVETICA Piumini Italy Vendita[/b][/url], dressed in his Sherburne County jail outfit of bright orange sweatshirt,[url=http://parajumperssale.webmium.com/][b]Parajumpers Coat Online Store[/b][/url], orange pants and laceless slip-on sneakers.
The only good news Hecker got this week is that he'll be allowed to rehire his former criminal defense attorney Bill Mauzy, who will be paid with a $55,000 retainer put up by Hecker's longtime friend and former business partner,[url=http://www.duveticajacketsjp.com/][b]デュベティカアウトレット[/b][/url], Ralph Thomas.
Davis also announced that he was releasing Hecker's court-appointed attorneys,[url=http://woolrichoutlet.halod.com/][b]Woolrich Arctic Parka[/b][/url], Brian Toder and Barbara May, from the case.
Prosecutors have demanded that Hecker repay the government for his public defense costs,[url=http://cheapsoccershoesoutlet.blogspot.com/][b]cheap soccer shoes outlet[/b][/url], which are estimated to run about $200,[url=http://cheapjordansshoesforsales.blogspot.com/][b]cheap jordans shoes for sale[/b][/url],000. But Davis said Friday that he would first secure a detailed accounting of Hecker's spending and cash situation and decide later just how much the government would be repaid.
Davis also ruled that the FBI would retain $11,000 in prepaid American Express debit cards that Hecker finally turned over to prosecutors on Wednesday.
Speaking from the bench,[url=http://duveticadownjacketssale.webmium.com/][b]Duvetica Down Jackets for sale[/b][/url], Davis told Hecker that he would be held accountable for every dime the government has spent on his behalf. marshals.
In an interview with the Star Tribune, Mauzy said Friday that Hecker "in effect started his prison sentence on Monday. . He knows that he is facing a lengthy prison sentence and he also knows that he has [essentially] begun to serve that now."
Mauzy added that he was pleased that he could start work on Hecker's sentencing hearing: "There is a lot of work that can be done to make a compelling presentation . he should receive less than 10 years in prison."
While Mauzy insisted that his client is in good spirits,[url=http://cheapnikesoccercleatsmercurial.webmium.com/][b]http://cheapnikesoccercleatsmercurial.webmium.com/[/b][/url], Toder and May acknowledged that adjusting to the abrupt change from tycoon to convict will be difficult.
Hecker once owned 26 new- and used-car dealerships, the national Advantage Rent-A-Car chain and several fleet,[url=http://rogervivieroutlet.halod.com/][b]roger vivier online shopping[/b][/url], leasing and mortgage broker companies that combined had 3,000 employees and generated an estimated $6.8 billion dollars in revenues.
Hecker pleaded guilty to fraud charges last month for hiding assets from the bankruptcy trustee and duping Chrysler Financial out of $13.8 million in loans,[url=http://parajumperssale.webmium.com/][b]Parajumpers Parka Coat Online Store[/b][/url].
