Former Park Rapids attorney sentenced to a year in prison for tax evasion
Former Park Rapids attorney Bill Jones will spend a year in prison for filing a false tax return.
Jones, 56, was sentenced Dec. 4 in U.S. District Court in St. Paul.
His sentence was the result of a plea agreement, in which Jones admitted to filing a tax return for 2001 that falsely characterized three property transactions that would have exempted him from paying capital gains taxes.
