September 4, 2013

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - A resident of Ebensburg, Pa., was sentenced in federal court to 12 months plus one day in prison and three years supervised release, on her conviction of conspiracy, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Roxanne Lamer, 46.

According to information presented to the court, from June 9, 2007, to April 15, 2008, Lamer conspired with others to defraud the United States by assisting a co-conspirator in concealing money from the Internal Revenue Service in order for the co-conspirator to avoid paying income tax.

Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie L. Haines prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Mr. Hickton commended the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation and the Ebensburg Borough Police Department for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Lamer.
