MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Federal prison officials are saying that Denny Hecker will be moving to yet another prison.

He is now at a medium security prison in Terre Haute, Ind. He has been moved twice already this week, first from the easy going prison camp in Duluth he has called home for the last year. Terre Haute however is not his final destination, it remains to be seen what is.

According to sources, Hecker has gotten into repeated trouble for abuse of phone privileges and has gotten caught more than once with smuggled cell phones. It is remarkable that despite Hecker’s dizzying descent from a life of unparalleled extravagance to being hauled off to jail, that the arrogance remains.

As he serves out the remainder of a 10 year fraud sentence, the investigation into his dealings by the bankruptcy trustee Randy Seaver continues. Seaver has suggested repeatedly in recent court filings that he believes that Hecker is continuing to hide assets. Hecker’s sentence of 10 years was far harsher than it would have been had he played by the Feds’ game and obeyed the rules.

Instead he flouted them as he apparently continues to do today. Perhaps these were the same traits that led him to do so well for so many years in business. But these are also the traits that made his fall and his continued descent all the more breathtaking and humiliating.
