ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Acting U.S. Attorney James P. Kennedy, Jr. announced today that David Mura, 67, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of failing to file federal income tax returns, was sentenced by U.S. Magistrate Judge Marian W. Payson to one year in prison. The defendant was also ordered to pay the Internal Revenue Service $300,636.82.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney John Field, who handled the case, Mura worked as an investment advisor with local brokerage firms, and earned significant money in commissions and other income. Despite knowing that he was required to report such income, and pay taxes on it, the defendant failed to file any federal tax returns for 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.

The sentencing is the culmination of an investigation by Special Agents of the Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigations, under the direction of Acting Special Agent-in-Charge Kathy A. Enstrom, New York Field Office.
