Federal agents in Colorado arrested 50-year-old Dennis Bjorkland a few days ago, according to just-released documents.
Bjorkland was a lawyer in Coralville before he was indicted by a grand jury in 2010 on a list of more than a dozen federal charges, including for mail and tax fraud.
Bjorkland is accused of duping his clients who were facing drunk driving charges into donating money to a fake charity he’d set up. In exchange, they were told the contributions could bring a lighter sentence.
He’ll be extradited from Colorado to again face charges in Iowa’s Southern District.
