Cudahy Man Charged With False Statements

MADISON, WIS. – David J. Lindberg, 46, Cudahy, Wis., is charged with six counts of making false statements in a matter within the jurisdiction of an agency of the United States, in an indictment returned today by a grand jury sitting in Milwaukee, Wis., in the Eastern District of Wisconsin. 

The indictment alleges that on March 26, 2009, Lindberg submitted six memorandums of interview related to an active criminal investigation to an Acting IRS Criminal Investigation Division manager, falsely stating within the memorandums that the defendant interviewed six individuals in December 2008 and January 2009 and that the individuals provided the information contained in the memorandums, when in fact, the defendant did not ever interview the individuals and the individuals did not provide the defendant the information contained in the memorandums.

If convicted, Lindberg faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison on each count.  The charges against him are the result of an investigation by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.  The prosecution of this case will be handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura Przybylinski Finn, of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Madison.

You are advisedthat a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
