Man to Serve 22 Months in Federal Prison for Failing to File Federal Income Tax Returns
Must Also Pay More Than $100,000 in Restitution to IRS
DALLAS — A local man who admitted willfully failing to file income tax returns for tax years 2010 and 2011 has been sentenced, announced John Parker, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas.
Anthony Rolfe was sentenced last week to serve a total of 22 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $100,490 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). He pleaded guilty in March 2015 to an Information charging two counts of failure to file. He has been in custody since his arrest in November 2014.
According to the factual resume filed in the case, Rolfe was employed by Dr. LeeRoy McCurley at a pain management clinic in Dallas, known as Mid-City Medical Clinic. As part of his job, Rolfe picked up the clinic’s earnings and delivered them to McCurley, in person or through McCurley’s office in Grand Prairie, Texas. Rolfe also delivered office supplies to and distributed fliers for the clinic. For these tasks, according to the factual resume and criminal complaint filed in the case, McCurley paid Rolfe thousands of dollars per week in checks that Rolfe deposited into an account at JPMorgan Chase Bank in the name of Platinum A&C Group, LLC, an entity for which Rolfe was a managing partner. Bank records showed that Rolfe deposited more than $500,000 in payments from McCurley in 2010 and 2011 and used the majority of the money on clothing and jewelry, hotel and resort stays, nightclub tabs, and yacht rentals.
IRS Criminal Investigation investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney John de la Garza prosecuted.
