Convicted Tax Cheat Profits from Bay Area Nursing Homes

On Friday, August 22, 2008, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld the conviction of Jack Easterday, a Bay Area nursing home operator, who was sentenced to 30 months in prison and ordered to pay $8.7 million in restitution for failing to pay millions in payroll taxes withheld from the checks of his employees. The court’s published ruling resulted from an appeal filed by Mr. Easterday after a district court jury found him guilty in March 2007 of failing to pay about $9.6 million in payroll taxes. The district court had delayed the prison sentence pending the appeal. You can view the Appellate decision below:
