Raleigh Woman Pleads Guilty to State Tax Charges
RALEIGH – A Raleigh woman pleaded guilty Tuesday in Wake County
District Court to a felony tax charge filed by the North Carolina
Department of Revenue.
Carla K. Wilson, 47, of 7713 Lead Mine Road, Raleigh, pleaded guilty
on Aug. 17, 2004 to one count of aiding and abetting Preece, Inc.,
doing business as Frye Exterminating Company, to embezzle North Carolina
Wake County District Court Judge Robert B. Rader sentenced Wilson
to a six-month minimum, eight-month maximum prison term. The sentence
was suspended and she was placed on supervised probation for 36 months.
Wilson was also ordered to perform 40 hours of community service within
120 days and pay $100 in court costs.
The state’s evidence showed that Wilson was the office manager
of Frye Exterminating Company and was responsible for filing the withholding
tax reports and remitting the taxes due for the business. She failed
to report or remit $50,449.71 in taxes withheld from employee wages
from period March 2002 through May 2004. Wilson admitted that she
used the money to pay business expenses for the company instead of
paying the taxes.
The charges against Wilson resulted from an investigation by the
Department of Revenue’s Raleigh Collections Office and the Criminal
Public Affairs Office
