Ticketing director at US college accused of fraud

Brent Holck, a former University of Minnesota ticketing director charged with fraud, will reportedly plead guilty.

The KFGO website states that Holck’s attorney said he intends to plead guilty to charges and make restitution.

The defendant allegedly siphoned cash from football, hockey and basketball tickets at the US university between April 2012 and January 2017.

Holck has been charged with wire fraud in federal court and was fired in February 2017 following an internal audit by the University of Minnesota, which unveiled inconsistencies in the ticket records.

Defence attorney Peter Wold and prosecutors have not revealed the amount of money involved, though the Minneapolis Star Tribune claims the charging document lists a single fraudulent ticket transaction three years into his scheme resulting in Holck receiving $1,500.
