Piedmont Businessman Sent to Prison for Financial Crimes
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — A Piedmont businessman has been sentenced for failing to pay taxes and concealing assets in a bankruptcy.
Fifty-eight-year-old Bernard Haag pleaded guilty in February and was recently sentenced to 1 ½ years in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release.
U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Haag also was ordered to pay nearly $231,000 in restitution to the IRS and $70,000 to various bankruptcy creditors.
