Internet Investor From Wichita Sentenced To Federal Prison For Tax Evasion

WICHITA , KAN. – A Wichita man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison and ordered to pay $827,216 in restitution for tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Dallen D. Harris, 39, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted that he reported taxable income for 2010 of $164,157 when in fact his taxable income was $1,045,972.

According to court records in a related civil forfeiture case in federal court, Harris derived income from a variety of Internet domain names including celebritysextape.tv, adultkingdom.net, porntesters.com, hardcorefilms.tv, celebritynakedpic.com and sextape.com. The government in that case is seeking to forfeit houses, cars and bank accounts owned by Harris.

Grissom commended IRS Criminal Investigation and Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Metzger for their work on the case.
