Liberal Man Pleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

KSCB News - November 14, 2012 10:25 am

A man from Liberal, Kan., has pleaded guilty to tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Sule Braimah, 52, Liberal, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted that in April 2008 he filed a joint tax return falsely reporting that in 2007 he and his wife had a taxable income of $631,166. In fact, he failed to report another $185,229 in income.

Sentencing is set for Jan. 28. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison, a $250,000 fine and restitution of $188,097, which includes 2008 and other tax years.

Grissom commended the Internal Revenue Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger for their work on the case.
