The web page page of the Ohio Supreme Court reports the interim suspension of a recently convicvted attorney. Floordaily has the story:
The former house attorney for Cincinnati-based Buddy's Carpet was sentenced last week to 18 months in federal prison for his role in a company tax fraud scheme, according to Law.com.
Alan Koehler and four other people, including company owner Leif Rozin, were indicted in 2005 for taking part in $3.6 million worth of fraudulent insurance purchases in order for company owners to avoid paying taxes on the money, according to the story.
Buddy's Carpet was a retail chain with more than 30 stores in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
In 2008 a jury found Koehler and Rozin guilty of conspiracy to defraud the IRS. Koehler was also found guilty of assisting in the filing of a false corporate income tax return.
