Bad check charge dropped against DL woman

A felony dishonored check charge has been dismissed against Dorothy Melinda Satrom, 65, of Detroit Lakes, in Becker County District Court.

According to court records, on Dec. 29, 2016, she wrote a $2,000 check to Fevig Oil of Felton for propane, parts and labor. The bill had not been paid as of June 19, when the charge was filed.

On July 18, the charge was dropped by the Becker County Attorney's Office because Satrom had made partial payment, which had been accepted, prior to the demand for payment being mailed to her. The oil company supports the dismissal of charges and the parties agreed the remaining balance would be satisfied outside of court.
