An office employee at a Vadnais Heights, Minnesota dental clinic was convicted of stealing from her employer and patients.
Kristine Marie Hansen, 40, was convicted of six felonies: four counts of theft by swindle and two counts of theft of services. She reportedly admitted to swindling Advance Family Dental and taking refund money owed to patients. She was sentenced to one year in prison and fined $6.000.
Hansen also allegedly reduced the bills for services the dental clinic provided to her and her family members on multiple occasions. The fraudulent reductions totalled more than $6,000.
Kristine Marie Hansen admitted to Ramsey County Sheriff's Office investigators that she had committed the thefts, according to the criminal complaint. She said that her family members did not know about the thefts from which they benefited.
Hansen has a 2009 conviction for misdemeanor identity theft that occurred in Forest Lake. She was a resident of Woodbury at that time, according to court records. No city of residence is listed on the complaint for the new charges issued on Jan. 13.
More recent information shows a 2018 state tax lien for $52,539.
