MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Former Minnesota auto dealer Denny Hecker is now scheduled to get out of prison one year earlier than he was previously.

The Star Tribune (https://strib.mn/21VGEt7 ) says the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed Wednesday that Hecker is expected to be released July 4, 2018, instead of the previously scheduled July 4, 2019.

Hecker was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2011 in a high-profile fraud case.

Bureau spokesman Justin Long said in an email that the reason for an inmate’s sentence reduction “is not always public information, such as in this case.”
