Sharp County Tax Protestor Sentenced by Federal Judge

DECEMBER 1, 2004 - Posted at 5:18 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins and Internal Revenue Service criminal investigators this afternoon announced that George W. Frye of Ash Flat has been sentenced by federal judge William Wilson, Jr. to serve four months in prison followed by four months in a community facility with one year of supervised release.  Judge Wilson also ordered Frye to pay $50,000 in restitution to the IRS.

Frye pled guilty in February to four counts of failing to file federal income tax returns with the IRS.  According to an indictment, Frye failed to report more than $500,000 which he earned between 1995 and 2002.

Testimony during the plea hearing revealed that Frye was first a member of "Save-a-Patriot" and then became a member of the "Freedom & Privacy Committee," both anti-government and anti-income tax organizations.
