Matthews Businesswoman Pleads Guilty to State Tax Charges
RALEIGH – A Matthews businesswoman pleaded guilty Monday in Wake County District Court to felony tax charges filed by the North Carolina Department of Revenue.
Jennifer Elizabeth Honeycutt, 45, of 808 Brightmoor Drive, Matthews, pleaded guilty on Oct. 11, 2004 to two counts of aiding and abetting The Bicycle Shoppe of Matthews, Inc. to attempt to evade or defeat the North Carolina and Mecklenburg County sales taxes.
Wake County District Court Judge Joyce A. Hamilton sentenced Honeycutt to two, consecutive six- to eight-month prison terms. The sentence was suspended and Honeycutt was placed on supervised probation for 36 months. She was ordered to pay a $200 fine and perform 50 hours of community services. Honeycutt paid $60,586.17 in restitution while in court.
The charges against Honeycutt resulted from an investigation by the Department of Revenue’s Charlotte Examinations Office and a special agent with the Department’s Criminal Investigations Division in Raleigh.
