DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) — A jury has convicted a former Dickinson insurance agent accused of stealing tens of thousands of dollars from a client.

The Dickinson Press reports that jurors deliberated more than an hour Monday before finding Scott Biggs guilty of theft of property.

Biggs could face up to 45 years in prison. Assistant Attorney General Jon Byers says the state also plans to seek about $46,000 in restitution. A sentencing and restitution hearing will be scheduled later.

State Insurance Commissioner Adam Hamm earlier ordered Biggs to stop doing business in North Dakota.
