Man sentenced for income tax fraud | Crime
MABLETON, Ga. -- A Mableton man has been sentenced in federal court for filing false income tax returns.
According to information presented in court, 43-year-old Rahman Hill was one of four suspects who preyed upon inmates and homeless people, using their personal information to collect more than a million dollars from the U.S. government.
The other three members of the conspiracy -- 36-year-old Kelcey Pierre Miller of Atlanta, 40-year-old Keith Lamone Richard of Decatur and 42-year-old Peter Raymond Williams of Newark, N.J. -- have already been sentenced.
U.S. Attorney Sally Quillian Yates said the four defendants filed 123 fraudulent returns between December 2005 and March 2007. The refunds were deposited into bank accounts controlled by Hill and Miller.
Hill was sentenced to eight years and four months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. He must also pay nearly $1.7 million in restitution.
