A federal judge in Worcester, Mass., has sentenced William Scott Dion of Sanbornville, N.H., to 84 months in prison for conspiring to defraud the United States and for obstructing the IRS.

In April, a federal jury convicted Dion and Catherine Floyd, also of Sanbornville, and Charles Adams of Norwood, Mass., for conspiracies to defraud the U.S. through the promotion and use of multiple tax fraud schemes, including an “under the table” payroll scheme and, in the case of Dion and Floyd, an additional “underground warehouse banking” scheme designed to conceal customer income and assets from the IRS. Floyd and Dion were also convicted separately for corruptly endeavoring to obstruct the IRS’s ability to determine their own income. Adams was separately convicted of tax evasion.
