  • The former manager of the state Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle office in Wahpeton has been sentenced for financial misconduct.
    KFGO radio reports (http://bit.ly/X4zbxs ) that 72-year-old Catherine Muehler pleaded guilty Monday to felony misapplication of entrusted property and was sentenced to three year of probation and $109,000 in restitution.
    Muehler ran the DMV branch for several years as an independent contractor. The office was closed last May and then taken over by the Wahpeton-Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce.
    Catherine Muehler is the wife of Harlan Muehler, who had served as Richland County's sheriff for 14 years when then-Gov. John Hoeven removed him from office in August 2001 in part due to illegal spending.
