The Associated Press' Amy Forliti reports a judge has given former Twin Cities auto mogul Denny Hecker a maximum 10-year prison sentence on fraud charges.
The story, picked up by Bloomberg, quotes Keith Moyer, senior fellow at the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Moyer is a former publisher of the Star Tribune.
"He was sort of the poster boy for the economic boom ... but then he also kind of turned into a poster boy for the crash," Moyer told Forliti. "He was on top of the world, and then he wasn't."
