Thorpe, 60, a 13-time winner on the senior Professional Golf Association Champions Tour and three-time winner on the PGA tour, was charged earlier this year with four counts of failing to file an income tax return and three counts of failing to pay taxes on the $5.4 million in income he earned in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
