Co-owner of Legend Communications pled guilty to knowingly and willfully filing a false tax return ten years ago.
This past week, Susan Patrick, co-owner of Legend Communications and Patrick Communications appeared in Federal Court and pleaded guilty to one count of knowingly and willfully filing a false tax return ten years ago.
According to the plea agreement, Patrick will be paying $2.5 million for unpaid taxes over several years.
Patrick has issued the following statement:
“I am sincerely sorry for the pain and embarrassment that this is causing my family, friends, and all those I’ve worked with including the dedicated people across the state of Wyoming that do such a great job at our radio stations every day to serve their communities. This is a tax obligation that I will be held accountable for based on a very serious lapse of judgement a decade or more ago. I am fully ready to be held accountable and to do whatever I can and need to do to make up for my decisions of the past.”
Patrick is expected to be sentenced in December or possibly early 2024.
