LAS VEGAS -- A bench trial before a federal judge concluded with the conviction Friday of Las Vegas attorney Paul Wommer on tax and money structuring charges, Nevada's U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden said.
In a trial before U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro, the 60-year-old Wommer was convicted of three counts of structuring financial transactions, one count of tax evasion, and one count of making and subscribing a false tax return, statement or other document.
According to court records and evidence introduced at trial, Wommer in 2010 made or assisted in 15 structured deposits totaling $138,700 for the purpose of evading bank reporting requirements. He also allegedly attempted to evade $13,020 in federal income taxes by concealing his assets, making false statements to the Internal Revenue Service, and placing funds and property in the names of nominees.
Wommer is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 1. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine on each structuring count, up to five years in prison and a $250,0000 fine on the tax evasion count, and up to three years in prison and a $250,000 fine on the false return count.
The case was investigated by IRS Criminal Investigation and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Duncan.
