According to court documents, Timothy Brian Mann, the former owner of Albert Lea dealership Mann Motors, was accused of operating his business without a license in February 2022.
Mann, who moved to Clarksville, Tennessee in October, was placed on unsupervised probation for the space of one year. He was also sentenced to $380 in fines and court fees.
Further investigation by law enforcement indicated that Mann also failed to transfer car titles to buyers within 10 days, and alert the Minnesota Department of Public Safety that the cars had new owners, as he was required to do.
In 2021, he was accused of tax evasion and fraud for understating sales tax on sold vehicles.
Mann pleaded guilty to the two charges and in exchange, 69 charges related to transferring and registering vehicle titles after sale were dismissed.
Mann was convicted of prostitution and criminal sexual conduct in 2020, after attempting to solicit sex from women in exchange for late payments and other products.
