District Court

Kandiyohi County

- Carlos Al Barrientos Quintana, 29, of Minneapolis, made his first appearance Thursday on a felony charge of perjury for falsely testifying in Kandiyohi County District Court.

He was released on his personal recognizance. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 14.

During a July 16 court hearing regarding a gross misdemeanor charge of financial transaction card fraud against him, Quintana allegedly provided contradictory evidence to that given in an earlier affidavit. He identified a man seen in a surveillance video as a relative in a May 12 affidavit and as someone else at the July hearing.

- Ann Martha Zilch-Koch, 46, of Spicer, was ordered Friday to serve 12 months in prison on a felony charge of financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult.

The prison sentence was executed at Zilch-Koch's request, in which she asked to stay at the Minnesota Corrections Facility at Shakopee, because she would likely fail to meet the expectations of being on probation.

Zilch-Koch was originally sentenced to 12 months of stayed prison time in February 2007 on the charge, plus 10 years of probation. According to court documents, the financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult charge was based on Zilch-Koch's theft of $40,000 to $45,000 from her mother. Zilch-Koch held power of attorney for her mother, who resides in a local nursing home. The investigation began in October 2005 after the woman had an unpaid bill of more than $16,000 to the nursing home and $1,900 in pharmacy bills for her medications. Meanwhile, the woman's accounts were left with less than $800. Zilch-Koch later told authorities she had paid herself $10,000 from her mother's accounts because her sibling had received $10,000 and that she spent between $40 and $100 per night playing pull tab lottery tickets.
