MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a man and woman from Ashland have agreed to plead guilty to charges that they distributed substances similar to illegal drugs and filing false tax returns.
John Morrison and Anna Novak were indicted in December on multiple counts of distributing substances similar to illegal drugs and fraud.
According to the indictment, Morrison and Novak owned a store called JC Moon. Between October 2009 and November 2013 they sold the substances as herbal incense. The two placed about $575,000 from the store’s revenue in their joint personal account and didn’t report the income on their tax returns.
Prosecutors said Friday that plea hearings for both Morrison and Novak have been set for August. Their attorneys didn’t immediately return emails.
