Felonies in Minnesota include stealing cash from ATM

A woman in Minnesota has been accused of pilfering more than $40,000 from an automated teller machine at her former place of employment -- a gas station. She now faces a felony charge of theft via swindling as a result. However, those charged with felonies in Minnesota retain the right to fight these charges vigorously in the criminal justice system.

According to authorities, the woman told police she had been taking cash from the automated teller machine deposits for almost a year. This was reportedly done to support the woman's heroin addiction. The woman's arrest took place following the completion of a police sting operation in May.

Man to be sentenced for robbery felonies

A man in Minnesota recently admitted that he had committed several armed robberies. He will receive a prison sentence for some of these felonies in July. The 18-year-old man will be sentenced to five years and 10 months behind bars.

The robberies occurred in three separate areas of a city in late October of 2017. They took place from 2:18 a.m. to 6:08 a.m. According to authorities, the man used a knife and a handgun to rob other individuals. The man's victims had their purses, cell phones and wallets taken. Nobody was hurt during the robberies.

5 Common Types Of Healthcare Fraud

Fraud is a form of white collar crime that has nearly countless types and methods. In the healthcare industry, however, these allegations can be troublesome as there are stacks of documentation and numerous departments that need to be investigated and thoroughly defended through the legal process.

Stiff penalties are in place for those who commit fraud

Being taken into custody for fraudulent activity in Minnesota can understandably be unsettling. Fortunately, those accused of fraud have the right to defend themselves vigorously in criminal court. Several types of fraud charges are possible, with one of them being insurance fraud.

Insurance fraud essentially involves making false claims to insurance companies. For instance, perhaps an individual claims that a certain item was stolen or lost, even though this is untrue. Another example is attempting to get an injury suffered during vacation covered by an employer's workers' compensation.
