Aguillard Roderick Indictment
FORMER DENHAM SPRINGS RESIDENT INDICTED
BATON ROUGE, LA – United States Attorney Donald J. Cazayoux, Jr. announced that a Federal Grand Jury returned an indictment on Thursday, October 18, 2012 charging RODERICK DEWITT AGUILLARD, III, 42, of Atlanta, Georgia, with failing to file tax returns in 2006 and 2007.
The Indictment alleges that AGUILLARD earned income in excess of $16,900 and $17,500, the threshold amounts which required the filing of tax returns in the tax years 2006 and 2007.
AGUILLARD faces a maximum sentence of 2 years imprisonment, a fine of $200,000, and payment of taxes, interest, and penalties owed to the Department of Treasury.
“Every citizen is responsible for filing correct and accurate tax returns," said James Lee, Special Agent in Charge, IRS-Criminal Investigation. "IRS-Criminal Investigation will vigorously investigate those individuals who knowingly and willfully evade their tax obligation."
The investigation of AGUILLARD was conducted by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Rene Salomon.
NOTE: An indictment is a determination by a grand jury that probable cause exists to believe that offenses have been committed by a defendant. The defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty at trial.
