Judge Activates Suspended Sentence Against Mecklenburg County
RALEIGH – A suspended sentence was recently activated against
a Mecklenburg County resident on charges filed by the North Carolina
Department of Revenue after he failed to file state income tax returns.
Andre Lunn, 50, of 6929 Olde Sycamore Drive, Mint Hill, was found
guilty of 78 counts of failure to file and failure to pay state individual
income, sales and withholding taxes and Mecklenburg County taxes in
September of 2002.
Judge Nancy Black Norelli issued Lunn a 45-day suspended sentence.
He was ordered to file 12 years of state income tax returns and pay
$82,000 in restitution for sales, withholding and Mecklenburg County
taxes. The judgment was suspended and Lunn was ordered to work out
a payment plan with the Department of Revenue and to file his overdue
income tax returns from 1990 to 2002.
When Lunn appeared in court on Nov. 25, 2003 for a review of his
case, it was found that he had not filed the income tax returns required
by the court. Norelli activated the suspended sentence and Lunn was
taken into custody to begin serve the 45-day sentence. The judge ordered
that he will be released after his state income tax returns are filed
and his $1,200 bond is paid.
The charges against Lunn are the result of efforts by the Department
of Revenue Charlotte Office.
