Wuorinen granted early release



HURLEY — A 48-year-old Ironwood woman was ordered released from jail Wednesday morning after serving 71 days of a one-year sentence for identity theft.

Iron County Judge Patrick Madden cited new information in the case from two doctors in modifying the sentence of Wendy Wuorinen.

Defense attorney James McKenzie successfully argued that Wuorinen should be released early and Madden granted McKenzie’s motion. McKenzie said information about Wuorinen’s mental condition “was not really known by the court at the time of sentencing.”
