Wake County District Court Judge William C. Lawton ordered Barwick
to serve a 30-day active sentence. Barwick paid $31,575 in restitution
to the North Carolina Department of Revenue prior to his court appearance.

and remitting the withholding taxes due for Devcon Construction,

in North Carolina individual income taxes from his employees' wages
that he did not remit to the Department of Revenue.
On July 9, 2004 Barwick entered a guilty plea on behalf of the corporation
to one count of failing to pay North Carolina withholding tax. As
a result of that plea Wake County District Court Judge Craig Croom
ordered the corporation to pay a $30,000 criminal fine

Office and a special agent with the Department's Criminal Investigations
Division in Raleigh.
