LEAWOOD, Kan. (AP) — A Leawood businesswoman has been sentenced to more than four years in prison for tax evasion.
She was sentenced Tuesday to four years and three months in federal prison, fined $100,000 and ordered to pay $68,000 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/2ehqr3x ) that at her trial earlier this year, prosecutors said Stegman gave IRS investigators false information and had an employee destroy company records.
They said Stegman used company money to buy condominiums in Las Vegas, real estate in North Carolina, a 54-foot yacht and $300,000 in gold coins.
