Raleigh Man Sentenced in State Tax Case

Date: 6/3/2005

RALEIGH – A Raleigh man pleaded guilty Friday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

William D. Mack Jr., 34, of 514 Pine Ridge Road, Raleigh pleaded guilty on June 3, 2005 to tow counts of obtaining property by false pretenses. He also entered guilty pleas to two counts of felony larceny.

Wake County Superior Court Judge Abe Jones sentenced Mack to three consecutive eight-month minimum, 10-month maximum prison terms. The sentence was suspended and Mack was placed on supervised probation for 36 months. He was also required to serve a 24-day active sentence as a special condition of probation. Mack must also pay restitution of $10,660 to the Department of Revenue and the Department of Corrections.

The state’s evidence showed that Mack filed fictitious North Carolina individual income tax returns for the 2000 and 2004 tax years and obtained state tax refunds that he was not entitled to receive. The larceny charges related to thefts from the Department of Corrections.

The tax charges against Mack resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s of Revenue’s Criminal Investigations Division.
