MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Christi Rowan filed court papers on Friday asking to be sentenced to the lowest possible sentence under the sentencing guidelines.

In other words, she’s asking for zero months in prison.

The prosecution is asking for six months in prison for Rowan, who pleaded guilty last year to two counts of fraud.

The prosecution argues Rowan has engaged in a pattern of deception ranging from creating a fake Facebook page for one of Denny Hecker’s ex-girlfriends (which featured a nude picture of said ex) to submitting a fake W-2 form to the IRS in 2006 so she could get a larger refund.

Sentencing is scheduled for next Friday.
