MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Prosecutors want Denny Hecker to stay in jail because he is a flight risk and “an economic threat to the community.”

Prosecutors made their case to keep Hecker in the Sherburne County Jail in a motion filed in federal court Monday. Hecker has been jailed since late October.

Hecker filed a motion late last week asking to be released pending his sentencing.

Prosecutors filed a motion with the court saying Hecker has continued to commit crimes even after his guilty plea.

Prosecutors say Hecker has a drug and alcohol problem and has no impulse control. Those factors, prosecutors argue, contribute to the likelihood that Hecker would try and flee.

Prosecutors also revealed Monday that they will ask for the maximum 10-year sentence.

A hearing on whether Hecker will be released will be held Tuesday.

    Good luck Denny. If you wanted the state to do you any favors maybe you should have worked with them a little instead of trying to hide all of your little lies. Did you think that they would not find out that you are a cheater and have stolen A LOT of money? Should have asked Madoff how well that works.
