Wake County Businessman Pleads Guilty To State Tax Charges

Date: 9/27/2004

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

Harold G. Proctor, 58, of 204 Spruce Drive, Morehead City, pleaded guilty on Sept. 27, 2004 to multiple counts of willful failure to file individual and corporate income tax returns. Proctor is the owner of Raleigh Plastics Inc., located at 8816 Gulf Court, Raleigh.

Wake County District Court Judge Shelley Desvousges sentenced Proctor to a 90-day prison term. The sentence was suspended and Proctor was placed on probation. He was also ordered to pay a $250 criminal fine. Proctor filed all returns with the Department and paid the taxes due prior to his plea.

An investigation by the Department of Revenue found that Proctor willfully failed to file individual income tax returns from 1997 through 2002. Proctor also failed to file corporate income tax returns for the same years.

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