GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The 52-year-old former president of a failed restaurant group has pleaded guilty to federal bank fraud charges.

The Great Falls Tribune reports (https://gftrib.com/2l9G0yt) that Ken Hatzenbeller pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Brian Morris in Great Falls on Tuesday.
