LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The owner of three Las Vegas Strip-area liquor stores has taken a plea deal and admitted failing to report income from the businesses to the IRS.
U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden says Ramzi Suliman pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas to a federal conspiracy charge.
Suliman could face up to five years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine at sentencing Jan. 12.
His attorney, Marc Risman, didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages
Suliman and co-defendant Jeffrey Nowak were indicted in April 2013 on conspiracy, false corporate tax return and tax evasion charges.
Nowak has pleaded not guilty. He's due for trial in December.
Bogden says Suliman admitted skimming store receipts and keeping false corporate records for the Super Liquor stores from about 2006 to 2009.
