WAHPETON (KFGO-AM) -- A felony charge has been filed against a Wahpeton woman who owned and managed the North Dakota D-O-T Motor Vehicle Office in Wahpeton for several years.
Catherine Muehler, 72, is facing a charge of misapplication of entrusted property. Muehler was charged after an audit and North Dakota Crime Bureau investigation. The audit found that Muehler could not account for up to $100,000 owed to the state. She worked as an independent contractor.
The office was shut down last May. It has since been taken over by the Wahpeton-Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce.
Muehler is the wife of former Richland County Sheriff Harlan Muehler. He was removed from office in 2001 after he was accused of misconduct.
