Burglary spree earns $197k restitution

Four young men who burglarized homes in Spokane County last year have been ordered to pay nearly $200,000 in restitution.

George A. Denison, 21; Patrick Hayes Wellman, 20; Joseph S. Denison and Anthony Fuerte are to split the $197,200 imposed in Superior Court after pleading guilty to residential burglary, theft and gun charges.

The burglary spree occurred between between April and September, including a burglary on Sept. 7 in the 32000 block of North Rimrose Drive in which seven firearms, 85 ounces of gold coins and 1,500 ounces of silver was stolen.

George Denison was sentenced to 39 months in prison recently; Wellman, who already is headed to federal prison for drug and gun convictions, was sentenced to 43 months. Fuerte was given an alternative drug offender sentencing program. Joseph Denison is awaiting trial but was listed in court documents as being required to pay the restitution.
  

Court: Bankrupt woman must pay $47k

A former Mullan, Idaho, woman now living in Oregon is required to pay nearly $50,000 in restitution for concealing property during a bankruptcy filing.

The $47,927.95 restitution is the amount Vicki Jean Fehrs, 56, earned from the sale of a property in Mullan she'd transferred to her son before filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Idaho in 2006, the U.S. Attorney's Office said today.

After settling the case in 2006, Fehrs sold the property and used some of the money to buy a home in Washington state.

Fehrs failed to disclose the sale proceeds to the trustee or creditors in her bankruptcy case and was charged in U.S. District Court with contempt, a misdemeanor, for disobeying a lawful order of a bankruptcy court.

She pleaded guilty in March and was sentenced Tuesday. She'll be on probation for five years.
