CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA – Pamela S. Bailey, 55, of West Milford, West Virginia, was sentenced to one year and one day in prison for providing false information on her 2011 income tax return, United States Attorney William J. Ihlenfeld, II, announced today.

An Internal Revenue Service investigation revealed that Bailey underestimated her taxable income resulting in unpaid taxes in excess of $42,000.00. Bailey pled guilty in July 2014 to one count of "Filing a False Personal Income Tax Return." Bailey will receive credit for time served since August 2014.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert McWilliams, Jr. prosecuted the case on behalf of the government.

U.S. District Judge Irene M. Keeley presided.
