Convicted auto dealer, Denny Hecker, on the move


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Convicted businessman Denny Hecker is on the move again.

The former multimillionaire had been serving a 10-year sentence for fraud at a minimum-security prison in Duluth. Then earlier this week he was taken to a medium-security prison in Oxford, Wis., and on Thursday he was back on the road, this time to Indiana.
