Deer River woman sentenced for DMV theft

DULUTH — A woman who stole about $5,700 while employed at the Grand Rapids Division of the Minnesota Department of Motor Vehicles was sentenced to five years of supervised probation in Itasca County District Court on Monday.

Thirty-two-year-old Crystal Marie Wilson of Deer River could be sentenced to prison if she doesn’t follow the conditions of probation, which include serving 30 days in jail, paying a $1,085 fine and $500 in restitution, providing a DNA sample, attending school or working full time or performing 20 hours of community service a week, having a chemical dependency evaluation, and consuming no alcohol or drugs. Wilson was charged in April for taking money for automobile titles but never processing them. The transactions were for local car dealerships. She pleaded guilty in July.
