Rocky Mount man pleads guilty to federal charges

As adults, we often catch ourselves lending advice to our children or the young people in our lives. Sometimes, this advice comes from a place of personal experience. Adages such as, "do as I say, not as I do" or "learn from my mistakes," are offered to young people in order to teach them how to live an honest life.

Court won't release prisoners innocent of a federal crime

Sometimes a court issues a decision that makes innocent certain actions that once were thought to be criminal. This brings up a problem for those who were convicted and went to prison for something now recognized as crime-free. Usually, if the prosecutor in a case requests a reversal of the conviction, the prisoner will be freed. In North Carolina recently, there were at least two instances of federal judges balking at federal prosecutors' requests to free prisoners wrongly convicted of committing a federal crime.

Couple sentenced for tax evasion five years apart

North Carolina residents should know that the federal government is getting tough on suspected tax crimes. Being prosecuted by the federal government is no laughing matter, and being convicted on federal charges of any variety can lead to heavy fines and long prison terms. A woman from Tacoma, Washington, has been sentenced to prison for tax evasion, along with other crimes, five years after her partner in the alleged scheme was sentenced. The 54-year-old man was charged in 2006 and later sentenced to an eight-year prison term. The 62-year-old woman was recently sentenced to seven years for her role in the alleged "abusive trust scheme" to hide people's incomes and assets from the Internal Revenue Service.
