Former Kennedy Catholic coach sentenced for tax evasion
The former boys' basketball coach of Kennedy Catholic High School has been sentenced to prison after pleading guilty in federal court to a charge of tax evasion.
Dustin Golub, 35, of Hermitage appeared before United States District Judge W. Scott Hardy on Thursday and was sentenced to one-and-half years in prison followed by another year and a half of probation.
According to federal prosecutors, Golub intentionally failed to report a total of around $3,791,891 in gross receipts from his business -- Penn Ohio Roofing and Siding -- for the calendar years 2016, 2017 and 2018, according to court documents.
Instead of depositing all of his business receipts into his business operating accounts, it's alleged Golub attempted to conceal business receipts by spreading them among nine different personal bank accounts, including four personal accounts in the names of his children.
A news release from the Department of Justice goes on to say the court was advised that despite multiple warnings, Golub is accused of intentionally keeping his bank transactions under $10,000 to avoid the bank's currency transaction reports.
In addition to the prison time, Golub was fined $10,000 and must make restitution to the IRS in the amount of $510,235.
Golub resigned from his coaching position shortly after being charged back in February.
