WICHITA, KAN. – A man from Liberal, Kan., has been sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for tax evasion, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today. In addition, he was ordered to $188,097 in restitution and fined $20,000.

Sule Braimah, 52, Liberal, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted that in April 2008 he filed a joint tax return falsely reporting that in 2007 he and his wife had a taxable income of $631,166. In fact, he failed to report another $185,229 in income.

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