Actor Stephen Baldwin pleaded guilty to failure to file income taxes for three years and will pay $300,000 in back taxes to the government.
Baldwin, the youngest of the Baldwin brothers and best known for his roles in The Usual Suspects and The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas, was arrested in December on charges that could have resulted in a prison sentence of up to four years.
According to Balwin’s attorney, if the actor pays back the $300,000 he owes, the tax charge will be removed from his record. If he does not pay his back taxes, he will receive five years of probation and will have five years to pay the $300,000.
Baldwin blamed his tax troubles on mistakes made by professionals who were paid to manage his affairs while he was on a remote island shooting the reality TV show Survivor.
