A former Minnesota mayor recently resigned from his position amid allegations that he participated in a tax fraud scheme. The supposed criminal tax violation was not for himself, but for two unrelated brothers. These alleged tax crimes were brought as federal charges.
A man from Vadnais Heights, Minnesota, has pleaded guilty to criminal tax violations as well as misappropriating assets from clients for his investment firm. The 43-year-old investment advisor reportedly used his father's money and client investments for personal purchases after depositing the funds in his bank account. Authorities say that he misappropriated more than $1.5 million.
