Chiropractor Arrested for Bribing IRS Auditor
FEBRUARY 13, 2014

BOSTON - A chiropractor was arrested today for bribing an IRS auditor.

Stephen Jacobs, 55, of Lowell, was arrested for bribery of a public official. The complaint alleges that Jacobs paid an IRS auditor $5,000 in cash to ignore two deductions he improperly took on this 2011 income tax form. These deductions were in fact payments Jacobs made to two different women because he touched them inappropriately during medical treatments during 2011 and 2012.

A probable cause hearing is scheduled for March 5, 2014 at 2:00 pm.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Robert O’Malley, Special Agent in Charge of the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, made the announcement today. The case is being prosecuted by Eugenia M. Carris of Ortiz’s Public Corruption Unit.

The details contained in the complaint are allegations. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
