Kandiyohi County

* A Willmar couple facing felony charges for wrongfully obtaining assistance pleaded guilty Oct. 26.

Michael Wold, 54, and his wife Susan Ann Wold, 58, both pleaded guilty to a felony charge of theft -- wrongfully obtaining assistance. As part of the plea agreement the Wolds both asked for a stay of imposition on their sentence. The stay will allow the Wolds to keep the felonies off their criminal records if they abide by their sentencing conditions. The Wolds also agreed to pay restitution as part of the plea agreement.

Charges were filed against the Wolds after an investigation by Family Services discovered both the Wolds were employed while receiving Medical Assistance from Kandiyohi County Family Services.
