Ohio Man Evaded Income Taxes

PITTSBURGH, PA – An Ohio resident pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of tax evasion, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

Douglas A. Hagy pleaded guilty to one count before United States District Judge Nora Barry Fischer.

In connection with the guilty plea, according to information presented to the Court, Hagy received approximately $982,000 in income between 2012 and 2016, which he failed to disclose on federal income tax returns.

Judge Fischer scheduled sentencing for September 11, 2018. The law provides for a total sentence of 5 years in prison, a fine of $250,000, or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed is based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Gregory C. Melucci is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations conducted the investigation that led to the prosecution of Douglas A. Hagy.
