Hammond – Robert Timothy Wilson, 55, and Shelly Wilson, 53, of Valparaiso, Indiana have been charged with conspiracy to commit tax evasion, tax evasion, and failure to file tax returns, announced U.S. Attorney Kirsch.

According to court documents, between on or about January 2008 and continuing through on or about April 2015, the Wilsons, owners and officers of Anchor Health Systems, Inc., conspired to evade paying taxes.  They also failed to file some required tax returns.

If convicted in court, any specific sentence to be imposed will be determined by the judge after a consideration of federal sentencing statutes and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.

The case was the result of an investigation by the Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation Division and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Toi Denise Houston.
