Wichita Man Who Sold ScootersPleads Guilty To Tax Evasion

WICHITA, KAN. A Wichita man who owned a business that sold scooters has pleaded guilty to tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today.

Dinh Nguyen, 31, Wichita, Kan., who owned BN Scooters, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted he owed substantial income tax in addition to the tax liability he reported on his 2006 income tax return. He knew he was making a false statement when he reported he did not owe any income tax.

Sentencing is set for March 3, 2014. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a fine up to $100,000. The parties have agreed that the court will determine the amount of tax owed at the sentencing hearing.

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