Tax Fraud Results in Prison for Former Businessman

Tax fraud doesn't have to be the end to a fulfilling life.

Tax fraud doesn’t have to be the end to a fulfilling life.

Government investigators brought a case for tax fraud against a Pennsylvania businessman. The defendant’s business provided temporary employment services for a mail-sorting facility. Over the course of a few years, the defendant’s business employed more than 200 workers. The defendant received payment from his customers in the traditional manner. Yet instead of paying the workers in the standard format, the defendant paid his temporary workers in cash.

Those “under-the-table” payments spared the defendant the trouble of having to deduct payroll taxes. His strategy did not serve him well in the end, however. He faced 16 counts related to tax fraud.

Initially, the defendant wanted to contest the charges for tax fraud. By paying in cash, he believed that he had avoided a paper trail. As an entrepreneur, the businessman was convinced that he had experience in fighting battles. With a good defense attorney, he felt strongly that he could beat the charges. The government’s charges alleged that his crimes involved more than $9 million.

His entrepreneurial spirit deluded him into believing that a criminal indictment for tax fraud equated to a typical business challenge.

Fortunately, the defendant did some online research. He discovered By downloading the free lesson plan, the defendant saw the wisdom in educating himself about the challenges that would accompany a criminal indictment. That initial download led the defendant to learn more. He downloaded lessons on the Presentence Investigation, on Sentence Mitigation strategies, and on Custody and Classification.

The more the defendant read, the more he realized that he should talk with a prison consultant. He learned that the wrong decision during the judicial process could expose him to a longer sentence in more difficult circumstances. He was astounded to read that white collar offenders could serve time in high security prisons.

The defendant hired a defense attorney to quarterback the judicial proceedings. At the same time, the defendant worked with one of our sentence mitigation experts. He retained a prison consultant to learn more about the prison experience and what options he had.


Tax Fraud Indictment

The more the defendant learned, the more comfortable he became with the reality that a criminal indictment for tax fraud would not be the end of the world for him if he made the right decisions. He agreed to work with his attorney in structuring a guilty plea.

Together with the help of a sentence mitigation expert, the defendant succeeded in crafting a persuasive package. It showed him as more than a defendant in a criminal tax fraud case. The sentence mitigation expert wrote a full narrative of the individual’s life, showing his good works as well as the influences that led to his bad decisions. As a consequence, the defendant received a much lower sentence than he anticipated. Further, he qualified for the RDAP program, which would result in his receiving a one-year time cut when he completed the Residential Drug Abuse Program in federal prison.

Defense attorneys provide an invaluable service to defendants who have been charged with tax fraud. But defendants should also seek guidance from a competent prison consultant and sentence mitigation expert. Together, the defense team can steer a defendant to the next phase of life.

    I would like to know how inmates have access to this service being restricted from Internet use. Also, how does the professor make money when most incarcerated individuals are unable to earn an income.

      Hello Dianne. It’s Michael Santos writing. I stand behind

      Based on your comment, you must not have had an opportunity to review the material on Let me explain.

      I concluded my obligation to the Bureau of Prisons on August 12, 2013. Since then, I’ve been working to build a career around all that I learned. I provide this service for defense attorneys and for defendants who face criminal prosecution. In other words, this site will prove most helpful to people before they are inmates. In time, I’ll create lessons for inmates as well. Since inmates do not have access to the Internet, family members or loved ones will purchase the lessons and then download the lessons. They then can send the lessons to their loved ones who are incarcerated.

      Since my release from prison I’ve worked consistently to improve the outcomes of our nation’s prison system. I taught as an adjunct professor at San Francisco State University for a year and I do a lot of speaking. A considerable portion of my work does not generate an income. is a commercial venture. The revenues that it generates will fund my travel expenses and provide an income that allows me to continue my work to improve outcomes of the criminal justice system. If you look through the videos on or read through the articles I wrote, you’ll have a better idea. Best to you. Sincerely, Michael
