Cary Businessman Pleads Guilty to State Tax Charges
RALEIGH – A Cary businessman pleaded guilty Monday in Wake
County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department
David Lee Holmes, Jr., 33, of 1615 Burgess Hill Court, Apex pleaded
guilty on June 7, 2004 to two counts of state sales tax evasion.
Wake County District Court Judge Robert Rader sentenced Holmes to
two consecutive six- month minimum, eight-month maximum prison terms.
The sentences were suspended and Holmes was placed on supervised probation
for 36 months. He was also ordered to pay $38,232.56 in restitution
to the Department of Revenue, a $100 criminal fine and perform 30
hours of community service.
The state’s evidence showed that Holmes was owner of Capitol
Kitchen Concepts, located at 11301-B Penny Road, Cary. From May 1,
2001 to April 30, 2003, he stopped filing and paying sales tax to
the Department of Revenue even though he continued to charge sales
tax on his invoices. Holmes failed to remit $25,659.03 in state sales
tax and $11,573.53 in Wake County sales tax.
The charges against Holmes resulted from an investigation by an auditor
with the Department of Revenue’s Raleigh Field Examinations
Office and a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations
Public Affairs Office
