ROCHESTER, N.Y.-U.S. Attorney William J. Hochul Jr. announced that today Anselmo Barilla, 48, of Rochester, NY, who was convicted of filing a false tax return with the Internal Revenue Service, was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $56,152 by U.S. District Court Judge Charles J. Siragusa.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard A. Resnick, who handled the case, stated that the defendant was self-employed as a mason in Rochester.
