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.

    A letter left with McCloud’s legal representative Friday was not straight away come again. A reports discharge problem by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on Thursday assumed the due taxes on the unreported total is at least $186,000. Prosecutors say McCloud will have to give back each and every one the taxes due plus point punishment and importance. REALLY you article is good one.
