Former Menomonee Falls Resident Indicted in Federal Court with Under-Reporting $2.6 Million in Income

Matthew D. Krueger, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that John Miller Ragland (age: 71) formerly of Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin has been charged in an indictment with four counts of tax evasion.  Specifically, the indictment charges that Mr. Ragland under-reported his income during the years 2010 - 2013 by more than $2.6 million and, thereby, attempted to evade more than $750,000 in federal income taxes.

Each of the offenses with which Mr. Ragland is charged carries a maximum possible penalty of up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000, or both. 

This matter was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation. The matter has been assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Matthew L. Jacobs for prosecution.

The public is cautioned that an indictment is merely the formal method of issuing charges against an individual. A person is presumed innocent until such time, if ever, as the government establishes his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
