Hecker’s Girlfriend Arrested While Visiting Him In Jail

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Fallen auto mogul Denny Hecker’s girlfriend, Christi Rowan, was arrested Wednesday night while visiting Hecker inside the Sherburne County Jail in Elk River, according to the jail’s officials.

Rowan, who is now in custody at the jail, was arrested at around 7:30 p.m. in the jail’s video visiting room.

U.S. Marshalls say Rowan violated her pre-trial release conditions.

Last week, Rowan filed court papers on asking to be sentenced to the lowest possible sentence under the sentencing guidelines, which means no prison time.

Her sentencing is scheduled for Friday.

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

Prosecutors say Rowan has a wide-ranging pattern of deception, including lying under oath and helping Hecker in his fraud scheme.

    Like Denny, Christi has no respect for law and will contunue to do as much crime and fraud as she can. Why is she out of jail in the first place. Give her Five years to think about what she did.

    • Tom


      I totally agree with you!

    • Checks In The Mial

      Yes and i would love to be paid for the SOLID GOLD faucets in his bathroom he STIFFED my company for. I assume they do not have those in prison Oh ! time to live like the people you ROBBED.

  • Sally

    Christi is a money hungry individual who will do anything to get her hands on all the bank accounts she can.. She needs to be punished, and her big spending days are done……

  • Rahaul

    She is a lady and it is not polite to send a woman to jail>> Jails are for men only

    • Doug

      By looking at that picture of her… She’s no Lady…

    • Kevin N

      …and I suppose women should only speak when spoken to? Are you for real?

      • pauline

        yeah, and it’s not polite to defraud someone either!

  • scott

    Prision is too much for these old folks! Maybe they would be willing to just donate their organs to some worthy humans so they could live and better the world where these two left off. Besides it would save us all money by not paying for their three hots and a cot over the years.

  • merks

    Oh thank you for arresting her. I can leave my doors unlocked and feel safe now that she is behind bars! The crime wave has ended!

    • what a fool believes

      Consider all the people that lost their jobs when Hecker’s empier crumlbed due to his own fraudulent activites. It wasn’t just other businesses that were hurt. Mechanics, title clerks, sales force. Hecker and Rowan are getting what they deserve.

  • Hopsdog

    People like her believe they are above the law and it doesn’t apoly to them. Money truly does make a person evil. I hope she rots in jail.

    • Kixman

      Money does not make a man evil – it’s the LOVE of money that makes a man evil.

      • Joey

        It’s the addiction to anything that will make someone evil to get it. No matter what that addiction is. Typically money. If one doesn;t have an addictive personality, that person will live a good life.

      • Wrong at that

        Ok – but there are some who hate money and they are evil. So the equation just got blasted. ;-) ;-)

  • Dispatcherbert

    Rahaul, you canot possibly be serious!?

  • Mr T

    Well, it looks like they cracked a big case here. Why don’t we get the serious lawbreakers? You know the ones on wallstreet?
    Nevermind, but let’s investigate who lent all that money to Denny Hecker in the first place. I find it hard to believe that a person was completely credit worthy to get 400 million dollars advanced and a few months later the same outfit that loaned him the money says he’s corrupt. There is more to this story.

    • Ed

      You are so right on that. there is more to this but we have someone to punish, thats all that matters. Looks good to the ignorant public, the people are happy someone got convicted, close the file before the whole truth comes out.

  • Taxpayer

    A career criminal with poor impulse control. Assuming the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree and these children also have diminished frontal lobes with low IQ, the best thing that can happen to them is to view these consequences.

  • Tc Radiodj

    Are you kidding?!?! Only 6 months?!?! For what she did? She only gets 6 MONTHS?! Oh that’s right. Females can do anything in MN and get away with it. Just like that female teacher who was molesting her student. Just a hand slap.. Gee go figure huh?!

  • Ted

    Scary! Those two physcos are a perfect match.

  • red

    She is uglier than…….. throw her in the slammer and keep her there. I agree, these 2 are a perfect match. Ugly Rowan and Fat Ass Denny

    • Red Green

      What do her looks have to do with anything? Didn’t read that as part of the story.

      • Wrongy

        agree … and besides, she’s got a fine bod for an older gal ;-)

    They got too overhead of themselves and greediness can cause deception and dishonesty. I really hope they can learn from this because money can not buy you out of everything. Everything they had, didn’t belong to them because they did not earn it in an honest way. Enough said.

  • Kyle's not buying it

    She looks like someone from The Ring series … fire in them eyes, real defiance and anger. That part I kinda dig as it was a blindside job. Then I also dig they blindsided her too. lol
    I imagine she’ll do the time, come out and have a new angle to her old game ready to go.
    BTW – what station did she used to work for here in TC’s?

  • GreatRedAyeJunk

    How do I apply for the job as her evening caretaker?

  • Chris

    Hot?!?!?! Are you kidding? That chick looks like Skeletor on Meth!!! Even if I was a rich old troll, (Denny used to be rich anyway) I would have a way hotter girl than her, about 25, NO kids, and not a golddigger. This chick is GROSS!

  • Murph

    When she gets out she will just be back to renting herself out again!

    • Wallys sipping a java

      Daily rate or annual fee? Priced right I’m in

  • Tom

    an older gal?? She’s 36 that’s not a older gal !! What are you 16??
    An older gal is 85 not 36 … at 36 your still learn’ what to do

    • Epilady4Christi

      Meth made her look like and old lady. It’s like dog year (no pun intended). Let’s put it this way, “On the road to becoming Miss America, the miles won.” Doesn’t she have to face charges in Arizona? Maybe they can pick up part of the tab. Curious.

    • I'll consider it

      LMAO …. ;-)
      Still – 36 and lots of mileage on the ride so maybe she does look pretty decent for that body style and use.
      I’d be a bit worried about falling asleep with her next to me. I like life and …. wait a minute. Seperate house. Tadaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  • Workingsofanidlemind

    Nothing but a common thief. Denny must have more stashed away that she knows about otherwise she would be history.

  • linguinilips

    Denny B-Gone for 10 years, why is she still hanging around. Ah, true love! (Where’s the rest of the money hidden anyway?)

  • TerriO

    She looks crazy- like she’ll scratch your eyes out
