RALEIGH -- A Lincoln County resident was found guilty Tuesday of tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Karl Paul Noonan, 58, of 7149 Oxford Hunt Drive, Stanley pleaded guilty on April 15 to three counts of failure to file state individual income tax returns.

Judge K. D. Black issued Noonan a 45-day suspended sentence and placed him on supervised probation for 48 months. A second 45-day sentence will begin when the first sentence is completed. Noonan was also ordered to pay $13,980 in restitution to the North Carolina Department of Revenue, pay court costs and must file future state tax returns and pay taxes owed on time.
