Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND, Ohio - The owner of a Canfield construction company has been convicted of federal tax charges.

Scott Bonamase of Streetsboro appeared in U.S. District Court in Cleveland on Tuesday, and agreed to plead guilty to willful failure to collect or pay taxes, and making false statements to a government agency.

The original federal indictment filed in December 2012, said that Bonamase was the owner of A. Bonamase Contracting.  He and the firm's project engineer, David Bonamase were indicted on 37 counts alleging that they conspired to avoid paying 279-thousand dollars in taxes.

The two allegedly falsified documents, to under report wages of employees.

Sentencing for Scott Bonamase is set for May 13.

David Bonamase has filed a motion indicating that he is interested in entering a plea to the charges he faces.
