Criminal defense attorney Michael Thiel of Baton Rouge, Louisiana was recently sentenced to 30 months in prison for tax evasion.
From 2003 through 2013, Thiel evaded paying approximately $1 million in income and employment taxes, plus penalties and interest, by concealing his income and assets using trusts and family members. Thiel also did not timely file income or employment tax returns and did not timely pay his tax liabilities.
In addition to the 30 month prison sentence, Thiel was also ordered to serve two years of supervised release and to pay restitution to the IRS in the amount of $998,352.00.
