ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis County attorney has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for tax evasion. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 58-year-old Nicholas Franke was sentenced Thursday in St. Louis’ federal court. Franke pleaded guilty in May to a single count of tax evasion, admitting that he failed to file three years of tax returns until after he learned of the criminal investigation. Prosecutors say Franke sought extensions on his 2013-2015 tax returns and reported that he’d earned no money despite earning hundreds of thousands of dollars.
