A former Minot, N.D., insurance agent has pleaded guilty to mail and wire fraud charges in federal court. Court documents indicate Alan Henning embezzled nearly $1.2 million between 2005 and 2010 from his employer, West McLean County Mutual Insurance Co. Henning faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine when he is sentenced Jan. 12.
A theft of property charge against Henning in state court has been dismissed. State Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm has revoked Henning’s license. The revocation bars him from selling, soliciting or negotiating insurance in North Dakota. Henning has signed a consent order waiving his right to a hearing.
