Family avoids prison following federal tax evasion case

When people in Missouri are accused of crimes, they must make several decisions that will impact the rest of their lives. Upon examination of the evidence against them, defendants must choose whether to fight the charges against them or plead guilty. In some cases, people who are not guilty of the crimes of which they have been accused will take the latter action simply because they may accept that there may be sufficient evidence to convict them. In fact, a family in another state has recently opted to plead guilty to tax evasion allegations.

The case involved three family members, a mother, father and their son. The three people own a restaurant together, Giovanni's Roast Beef and Pizza. They recently pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and aiding in the filing of false tax returns.

According to prosecutors, the three were in involved in a $3 million tax evasion scheme. Though they must pay restitution and a $150,000 fine, they were able to avoid jail time. The judge in the case also ordered them to remain in the city for 18 months.  

Unfortunately, the consequences of a conviction of tax evasion charges can be severe. Often, those accused in Missouri are unsure about which course of action to take. Fortunately, there are experienced criminal defense professionals who can help them understand their option in addition to the potential consequences of each. While such decisions are typically difficult to make, having such a professional on their side often reduces some of the stress associated with responding to criminal charges.
