Orlando Man Sentenced To More Than 19 Years For Enticement Of A Minor And Federal Income Tax Fraud

Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Paul G. Byron has sentenced Andy William Bosch (43, Orlando) to 16 years and 8 months in federal prison for enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity and for federal income tax fraud. Bosch pleaded guilty to both charges on March 29, 2018. 

According to court documents, between March 10 and March 16, 2016, Bosch enticed a minor to travel from the Philippines to the United States to engage in sexual activity. Then, from October 20, 2016, to February 15, 2017, he used a cell phone to coerce the same minor to engage in sexual activity.

Furthermore, both independently and as part of his federal tax preparation business (BBG Tax Services), Bosch helped to prepare and file fraudulent federal income tax returns from 2012 to 2017. The losses for the false tax returns charged in the indictment totaled $135,801.          

The enticement case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the U.S. Border Patrol, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service, and the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office. The tax fraud case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation.

“HSI’s extensive international reach helped stop this criminal in his tracks,” said HSI Special Agent in Charge James C. Spero. “This sentencing underscores the combined efforts of federal, state, and local law enforcement in working to stop predators from harming children.”

Both cases were prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorneys Christina R. Downes and Brandon Bayliss, on assignment from the Office of Principal Legal Advisor, ICE, in the Middle District of Florida.
