Mechanicsville Man Sentenced to Prison for Tax Evasion

RICHMOND, Va. – A former executive of Nutronix Revolution, Inc., a multi-level vitamin and supplement marketing company, was sentenced today to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay $963,357.86 for income tax evasion.

Blair S. Bremner, 50, of Mechanicsville, pleaded guilty on Nov. 7, 2016. According to court documents, Bremner, who holds a business degree from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, has a history of not filing his income tax returns.

Additionally, Bremner refused to file his returns or pay income taxes despite his father having been convicted and sentenced to 18 months in federal prison for the same type of criminal activity.

Dana J. Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and Kimberly Lappin, Acting Special Agent in Charge, Washington, D.C. Field Office, IRS-Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI), made the announcement after sentencing by U.S. District Judge M. Hannah Lauck. Assistant U.S. Attorney S. David Schiller prosecuted the case.
