Lawyer Gets Prison for Tax Evasion

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas lawyer has been sentenced to two years in prison for his guilty plea to one count of tax evasion.

According to the United States Attorney for Nevada office, attorney Charles C. LoBello was also ordered to pay $260,625 in restitution. U.S. District Judge James Mahan ordered LoBello to report for prison April 15.

According to court records, LoBello hid more than $900,000 in income from the Internal Revenue Service between the years 2001 and 2005 and intentionally gave incomplete information to his bookkeeper and tax return preparer.

LoBello's brother, Mark LoBello, had pleaded guilty to tax evasion in Aug. 2008 . Mahan sentenced him to 15 months in prison. Mark LoBello, who was also a Nevada attorney, was suspended by the Nevada Bar in December of that year.
