Concord Man Pleads Guilty To State Tax Charges

Date:  May 1, 2008

RALEIGH – A Concord businessman pleaded guilty Wednesday in Wake County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.

Lawrence Mitchell Miller, 51, of 425 Caldwell Drive, Concord pleaded guilty on April 30, 2008 to willful failure to file a state income tax return. Miller, who was an executive with Uwharrie Capital, filed his delinquent 2001 through 2006 individual income tax returns and paid $12,916 in taxes before his guilty plea.

Wake County District Court Judge James R. Fullwood sentenced Miller to a 45-day prison term. The sentence was suspended and he was placed on supervised probation for 60 months. Miller was ordered to pay a $2,000 criminal fine and must complete 100 hours of community service within 24 months. He was also ordered to file and pay all future state taxes in a timely manner.

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