FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 20, 2013

DAVENPORT, IA – On May 17, 2013, Regina Jimenez, age 60, of Clinton, Iowa, was sentenced to 21 months imprisonment on two counts of filing false tax returns, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. United States District Judge Stephanie M. Rose also sentenced Jimenez to one year of supervised release and ordered her to pay $332,465.00 in restitution.

Jimenez operated AA Accounting & Tax Services, Inc. in Clinton, Iowa from approximately 2007 through 2011. Jimenez used the business to facilitate the theft of over $300,000 from a client who believed that Jimenez would use the money to pay the client’s taxes. Jimenez instead used the money for gambling expenditures, and did not report the stolen funds on her tax returns.

This case was investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation, and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
