U.S. District Judge Nora Barry Fischer imposed the sentence on Gary E. Mills, 61, of DuBois. The prison sentence will be followed by one year of supervised release.

According to information presented to the court, on April 15, 2015, April 15, 2014, and Aug. 1, 2014, Mills filed false joint tax returns by intentionally under reporting his and his wife’s income to the IRS.

Previously Mills’ now ex-wife had been prosecuted for embezzling more than $12 million dollars from her former employer, Matthews International.

She pleaded guilty to mail fraud, wire fraud, tax evasion and money laundering and was sentenced to 100 months in prison and three years of supervised release.

Between Gary Mills and his ex-wife, they forfeited multiple vehicles, residences, motorcycles, a snow mobile and multiple items of personal property.

Prior to imposing sentence, Fischer stated that the evidence presented at trial that established the Mills intentionally filed false income tax returns “was overwhelming.”

Acting U.S. Attorney Steve Kaufman commended the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service for the investigation leading to the successful prosecution of Mills.
