Tax Evasion: Vegas Attorney Facing Jail Time

Las Vegas attorney, Ian Christopherson, is facing jail time for 33-months after being convicted of tax evasion for tax years 1994 and 1996. The veteran lawyer and former candidate for the state judiciary apologized for his actions after his sentencing for the tax evasion. The attorney was accused of using bank accounts under false names to hide assets from the Internal Revenue Service.

While prosecutors sought a heavier sentence of 51-months in jail, U.S. District Judge Miranda Du deemed the 33-months as sufficient.

Christopherson will report to begin his sentence on March 20. He was also asked to pay more than $780,000 in restitution to the Internal Revenue Service. The attorney will serve three years of supervised release once his prison term is over.
