Court records show that Printz is charged with mail and wire fraud and money laundering. Boerma faces wire fraud and other charges.

The two are accused of working together to defraud Towanda Grain Co., Printz's creditors and others.

Both have pleaded not guilty.

The state Department of Agriculture took the grain company over in 2010 after it was notified of financial irregularities. Another company later bought the assets. Towanda is just north of Bloomington.
