Minn. Attorney Gets 18 Months For Tax Evasion

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Federal authorities say a Minnesota attorney who pleaded guilty to tax evasion has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison.

Prosecutors say Samuel Alfred McCloud admitted that he failed to report at least $595,000 in income. They say he worked at two law firms but had clients write checks directly to him rather than make them payable to the law firms.

A message left with McCloud’s attorney Friday was not immediately returned.

A news release issued by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Thursday said the unpaid taxes on the unreported amount is at least $186,000.

Prosecutors say McCloud will have to pay back all the taxes owed plus penalties and interest.
