Emily Gurnon has an update on the case of a former Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry employee charged with stealing employees’ information:
Roxanne K. DeFlorin, a former state staffer who had the personal information of hundreds of public employees at her home, was convicted Wednesday of identity theft by a Ramsey County jury.
Representing herself at trial, the 50-year-old DeFlorin argued that her three co-defendants were the guilty parties and that she knew nothing of their crimes.
