PIERRE – South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says bond has been set at $20,000 each for a Fargo couple accused of allegedly running a building scam.

Forty-five-year-old George Nelson III and 44-year-old Karla Nelson were indicted by a Hughes County grand jury in March on two counts of grand theft by deception, an offense punishable by up to 10 years in prison. They also are charged with one count of conspiracy to commit an unlawful act, punishable up to five years in prison.

Jackley says the charges stem from the sale of metal buildings that were never completed.

North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem also has alleged that the Nelsons scammed consumers in at least nine North Dakota counties, taking money in advance and doing little or no work.
