Alabama Woman Sentenced to Probation for Helping Friend Conceal Money from the IRS

JOHNSTOWN, PA—An Alabama resident has been sentenced in federal court to one year probation on her conviction of conspiracy, United States Attorney David J. Hickton announced today.

United States District Judge Kim R. Gibson imposed the sentence on Linda Reed, 70, of Florala, Al.

According to information presented to the court, from June 9, 2007, to April 15, 2008, Reed conspired with others to defraud the United States by assisting a co-conspirator in concealing money from the Internal Revenue Service in order for the co-conspirator to avoid paying income tax.

Assistant United States Attorney Stephanie L. Haines prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.

Mr. Hickton commended the Laurel Highlands Resident Agency of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Reed.
