Canfield attorney sentenced to 52 months for scheme to steal $1.3 million from IRS
A Canfield attorney has been sentenced to 52 months in prison for his role in a scheme to steal $1.3 million from the IRS.
Forty-nine-year-old Robert Rohrbaugh was sentenced on charges of conspiracy to commit offenses against the Unite States, aiding and abetting theft of government property, aiding and abetting false claims against the United States and conspiracy to commit money laundering.
The charges stem from Rohrbaugh assisting co-conspirators, Brandon Mace and Terris Baker in obtaining a federal tax refund check of $1.3 million for a fake business.
According to court documents, the two attempted to launder money by purchasing several high-end luxury vehicles.
Once his prison term is up, Rohrbaugh must serve three years of supervised release and pay $400 for a special assessment. He, along with Mace and Baker must pay a joint restitution of $1.3 million to the IRS.
$782,000 had been recouped by the government, meaning $569,938 is still owed.
