A former Shively, Kentucky, police officer was sentenced to 39 months in prison and three years of supervised release after being found guilty by a federal jury of multiple counts of tax fraud and lying to the IRS.
Following a three-week trial, the jury found Curtis Gordon Jr., 40, of Louisville, Kentucky, guilty of three counts of filing false federal income tax returns, three counts of failure to file federal income tax returns, one count of bank fraud, and one count of submitting a false document to the IRS.
“Today’s sentencing is an appropriate punishment for the acts of willful fraud that Mr. Gordon was convicted of,” said United States Attorney David J. Hale in a statement.
“Tax fraud is a serious crime that will be prosecuted by this office and diligently investigated by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration and the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service.”
