MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A former Madison man will be sentenced in May for tax evasion and harassing IRS agents.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports 58-year-old Scott Bodley was convicted Friday of 26 charges, including filing false money orders, false income documents and false tax returns, along with income tax evasion and attempting to impede and obstruct the administration of federal tax laws.
Bodley faces up to three years on each of two tax charges and up to five years each on the remaining 24 convictions. He was taken into custody pending sentencing May 1.
At a three-day trial where Bodley represented himself, prosecutors said he used false Social Security numbers and false identification documents. They claimed Bodley stopped filing legitimate tax returns in 1999.
Bodley lives in Silver City, N.M.
