According to KSTP-TV, who cites the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Hecker was moved from a Duluth federal prison camp into a halfway house in Minneapolis.

The 65-year-old Hecker had been in prison since 2011 after being convicted of defrauding auto lenders and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

Hecker pleaded guilty in 2010 to two counts of fraud and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. His original sentence would've kept him behind bars until 2019, but that was reduced by a year.

The Bureau of Prisons lists Hecker's full release date as July 4.
