Mission couple plead not guilty to wire fraud

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A man and woman from Mission have pleaded not guilty to federal wire fraud charges.

Mark Edward O'Leary and Sharli Colombe, both 35, were indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this month.

KOTA-TV reports the indictment alleges that from February 2011 and June 2017 the two passed at least 544 checks drawn on a bank account that did not belong to them. Prosecutors say the checks were used for personal items.

A conviction carries up to 20 years in prison. They have been released on bond.
