District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Alberto Vielma Moreno Jr., 25, of Willmar will serve 60 days in jail for financial card fraud.

The court on Wednesday sentenced Moreno to a year in jail, but 305 days of the sentence was stayed provided he serve 60 days, pay fines and fees of $750, and abide by terms of a two-year probation. He was granted work release.

Moreno had pleaded guilty Feb. 1 to the gross misdemeanor charge. A felony charge of financial card fraud was dismissed in return for the plea.

The complaint charged that Moreno had used another man's identity to open a credit account and charged $744.49 to it. The charges were made at a Willmar business at which Moreno had previously worked. The man whose identity was used had previously obtained a loan with Moreno. The defendant used the information to open the account.
