City of Fargo expected to pay ex-bank executive

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- A former bank executive in Fargo who lost her job while facing felony methamphetamine charges that were later dismissed is set to get a settlement from the city.

The Forum says the $62,500 will cover lost wages for Candice Rupprecht. The City Commission is expected to consider the mediated settlement of a federal lawsuit at its Monday meeting.

The 2005 case against Rupprecht was thrown out because a judge said a city narcotics officer had misread the results of a meth field test done on a plastic bag found in Rupprecht's garbage. Rupprecht was an assistant vice president at Bank of the West at the time.
