Former Dann aide faces tax charges in Warren
WARREN – Anthony Gutierrez, a supervisor fired from the Ohio Attorney General’s Office after an internal investigation determined he sexually harassed two female subordinates, faces four income-tax related charges in Warren Municipal Court.
Gutierrez, 50, of Liberty, is scheduled to appear Aug. 27 before Magistrate Dan Gerin.
Each offense carries with it a maximum $500 fine and six months in jail.
Gutierrez was fired May 2 by then-Attorney General Marc Dann, a neighbor and longtime friend, as the office’s director of general services.
The tax violation charges were filed May 14, the same day Dann resigned, by Tom Gaffney, city tax administrator.
Gaffney said the charges against Gutierrez have nothing to do with the scandal in the attorney general’s office.
According to the complaints filed by Gaffney, Gutierrez is charged with not filing tax returns in 2006 and 2007 and not withholding taxes from his employees during the fourth quarter of 2006 and all of 2007. Gutierrez owned MTV Construction LLC of Liberty.
