Prison term given Augusta man for tax fraud conspiracy

An Augusta man who took part in a conspiracy to submit fraudulent tax returns was sentenced Wednesday to 21 months in prison.

Anthony L. Lindsey of the 3400 block of Peach Orchard Road pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court earlier this year to conspiracy to commit wire fraud affecting a financial institution. In addition to the prison term, Lindsey will serve an additional five years on supervised release. He must also pay $58,364 in restitution.

Lindsey participated from February to March 2012 in the use of stolen personal identity information to prepare fraudulent income tax returns.
