Fayetteville Woman Pleads Guilty to State Tax Charges

Date: 2/21/2006

RALEIGH – A Fayetteville woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Wake County District Court to a tax charge filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Tamika L. McLean, 23, of 5741 Gregory St., Fayetteville, pleaded guilty on Feb. 21, 2006 to one felony count of obtaining property by false pretenses.

Wake County District Court Judge Shelley Desvousges sentenced McLean to a six-month minimum, eight-month maximum prison term. The sentence was suspended and McLean was placed on supervised probation for 36 months. She was also ordered to pay restitution of $391 and perform 40 hours of community service.

An investigation by the North Carolina Department of Revenue found that McLean knowingly filed a fraudulent 2002 income tax return misrepresenting her income and withholding amounts.

The charge against McLean resulted from an investigation by a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division in Raleigh.
