Bradley Stoneking, 30, Lawrence, Kan., pleaded guilty to making false statements in his income tax return for 2010. He falsely claimed federal tax withholdings on gambling winnings in the amount of approximately $330,000. In fact, the federal tax withholding on his gambling winnings was $300.

Sentencing is set for Sept. 8. He faces a maximum penalty of three years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000. Grissom commended the Internal Revenue Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Rask for their work on the case.
