Cloquet, MN ( — A Fond du Lac police officer is facing a felony charge of theft-false representation.

According to a criminal complaint, Sheri Dupuis-Holshouser allegedly received $1,190 in energy assistance from the Minnesota Department of Commerce by not disclosing her spouse as a household member.

The complaint says the 38-year-old, on at least four occasions between 2012 and 2014, applied for energy assistant programs and each time listed herself and her children as the only household members.
An investigation, conducted by the Pine County Sheriff’s Office, found that her spouse’s status and income would have made her ineligible for the energy help.
Dupuis-Holshouser is scheduled to make her first appearance in Carlton County Court on June 8th.
If convicted, she could be looking at five years behind bars and or a $10,000 fine.
