Wichita Man Who Sold Scooters Sentenced For Tax Evasion


WICHITA, KAN. A Wichita man who owned a business that sold scooters has been sentenced to 27 months in federal prison, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said today. In addition, he was ordered to pay $459,284 in restitution.

Dinh Nguyen, 32, Wichita, Kan., who owned BN Scooters, pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. In his plea, he admitted he owed substantial income tax in addition to the tax liability he reported on his 2006 income tax return. He knew he was making a false statement when he reported he did not owe any income tax.

Grissom commended the Internal Revenue Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney David Lind for their work on the case.
