Rockingham County Attorney Pleads Guilty to State Tax Charges
RALEIGH – A Reidsville attorney pleaded guilty Tuesday in Wake
County District Court to tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department
Richard Versharn Broadnax, 33, of 112 S. Main St., Reidsville, pleaded
guilty on Sept. 28, 2004 to multiple counts of failure to file individual
income tax returns.
Wake County District Court Judge Ann Salisbury sentenced Broadnax
to a 90-day prison term. The sentence was suspended and Broadnax was
placed on supervised probation for 36 months. He was also ordered
to pay $18,750 in restitution and a $500 criminal fine. Broadnax filed
all returns with the Department prior to his plea.
An investigation by a special agent with the North Carolina Department
of Revenue found that Broadnax willfully failed to file individual
income tax returns from 1997 to 2002.
The charges against Broadnax resulted from an investigation by a
special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations
Division in Raleigh.
