A man from Harding Township NJ is headed to federal prison after pleading guilty to fraud charges.
The suspect, a 56-year-old resident of Harding Township, owned and operated De’Omilia Plastic Surgery. The medical practice was located in Morris County, NJ. According to law enforcement officials, he set up shell companies and used the other fake businesses to avoid paying taxes on real business income. The suspect allegedly hid the funds in bank accounts that had been opened by various associates.
The suspect reportedly used business income to cover personal expenses, including expensive jewelry, houses, and artwork.
The total amount of fraud committed by the suspect was around $5.8 million. Between 2006 and 2010, the suspect allegedly defrauded the government out of nearly $3 million in taxes.
The suspect was eventually placed under arrest and charged with numerous federal crimes. He managed to avoid a trial by reaching a plea agreement with the US Attorney’s Office.
Now the suspect has been sentenced to a term of incarceration of three years in a federal penitentiary.
