On Independence Day, Denny Hecker Could Go To Halfway House

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Denny Hecker could be out of prison and transferred to a halfway house as early as Tuesday.

The well-known former car dealer is currently behind bars for defrauding lenders and hiding money from the FBI and a bankruptcy trustee.

He's scheduled for release in 2018.

Some inmates, however, move to halfway houses a year in advance, which, for Hecker, would be any time after July 4.

Hecker's former attorney said last week that Hecker is a nonviolent offender and the re-entry program is made for someone like him.
