MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The wife of beleaguered auto mogul Denny Hecker has been released from federal prison and is back in Minneapolis, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Christi Rowan-Hecker, 38, was sent to the Federal Correctional Institution in Greenville, Ill. after being sentenced on fraud charges. In March, she was sentenced to spend 14 months in federal prison for stealing money that belonged to Denny Hecker’s creditors.

Now, she has been remanded to the custody of Minneapolis Community Corrections.

She was initially expected to get probation last spring, until then authorities found out she was still using an American Express gift cards after the judge ordered them seized by the FBI.

The judge was outraged and gave her the maximum sentence, which included paying about $36,000 in restitution and serve five years of probation.

Meanwhile, former auto mogul Denny Hecker is serving out his 10-year sentence in a prison camp in Duluth. The two were married in an over-the-phone ceremony in February.

    She did her sentence…time flew by I guess.
    So how much ya wanna wager..in snowballs of course to remain legal …. that he gets more time for a camera than Amy Senser gets for taking a life ?
    BTW…and funny but I did not see any reference here (wink-wink and wonders why? lol) that Ms Amy Senser again received another postponement until mid-January, 2012 on her hearing. And that good ol’ Judge Peterson also has a cease order on any civil gathering of info until after the criminal is done….. imagine that now. A life is not worth a damn thing evidently unless it is white, rich, well connected it seems. Way to go Judicial System and political schmucks…. your true colors are showing up well. 😉
    She deserves jail time like everyone else and Judge Peterson needs to friggen go. Didn’t realize he could be had so easy…….sad

      Denny ran our of money and Sensers still have plenty to fund Amy’s ‘fade it into the sunset’ trial. They are hoping for a big news event that will overshadow her muder trial while they slip ou the back door. I’m afraid her real judgement day will only come from above.

      That’s why this society needs some changing! Justice is far from being fair.

      How big an advertiser is Senser’s on WCCO ?
      Money just keeps on talking ….. sick

    4. I'm just sayin' says:

      this is about Cristi, not Amy. I know all white women look alike to you, but try to keep the names straight at least.

  2. jackactionhero says:

    This woman is 38? She looks 48. She looks like she fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on her way down…

    She must have received a lot of “good time” to have gotten out so early! $36 thousand for restitution, combine that with what her dear hubby owes and theyll never see the light at the end of the tunnel – HOPEFULLY! Of course, that is based on them not having any money hidden.

    1. Todd says:

      I’m sure they have some money stashed somewhere. They’ll just take it and run to Mexico!

      1. northern minnesota says:

        I’m thinking she will have it all spent before he gets out.

        Surfing anruod stumbleupon.com I noticed your web site book-marked as: What is the sister of Olga Farmaki being shot accidentally by well-known entrepreneur! | FreshCyprus. Now I am assuming you book marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a ton of site visitors? I’ve been looking at doing some book-marking for a few of my sites but wasn’t certain if it would generate any positive results. Many thanks.

    No – she deserves it for killing someone and then fleeing the scene.
    Maybe she can join ol’ Denny and they can “play” together. Joe won’t mind

    1. X-puffer says:

      He was not on the freeway. He was on an off ramp.
      She splattered the guy, with blood on the window. She left the scene because she was probably drunk. Even if she wasn’t drunk, it was completely wrong and she should be punished.
      The person above is right. She will probably get off..

  5. X-puffer says:

    Get a new picture..This one is scarey.
    There is a coffee can somewhere with moola. Only Denny knows where it is, so she will remain faithful.

  6. Yap says:

    She should let me know when she get divorce so that i can use the cash money they are hiding

  7. What says:

    Hello she hit a person on the highway then left the person to die. She did not stop and pull over like most of us would. So she or whoever was driving must of been drinking or on drugs for them to leave and not pull over. So yes they do need to serve sometime for this hello!

    1. I'm just sayin' says:

      Your statemetnt is full of assumptions. First of all no lights there, have you been there? I have it is a scary part of town and pretty run down. If someone was on the side of the road dressed dark and something hit my car, I would not stop either. I would call the cops and report it, but I would not stop to see if they wanted my wallet, car, and life. You have no proof that she was on anything, just wild speculation based on no facts and most likely an over active “hate rich whitey” gene.

      1. Sayin what says:

        Thanks for you thoughtful update Mr. Senser.

  8. xxx says:

    Is the FBI going to keep a tail on her so that they can track her to the islands when she goes to pick up the millions that Denny has stached there?
    Good way for Denny to get a courier for his money.

      ir10031981 on March 23, 2011 sometimes I wdnoer what’s the point of being debt free including the house when you’re gonna live alone because you’re single and have no children? sure on one hand it’s cool to owe nothing, weird! but if you’re like me you go to bed somewhat depressed wishing you had a spouse and even a child to share your life with.

    What was the article about again? Oh yeah, Hecker’s old lady…it’s Bush’s fault!

    kendra326 on September 4, 2011 I just had a baby girl about a month ago and so I love that they offer aubutifel organic burp cloths. The bubblegum chocolate mouse colors are absolutely adorable. I love that their products are organic because we are a green family as much as we can be.
