Youngstown woman draws federal prison time in tax-fraud case



Published: Thu, January 10, 2013 @ 5:16 p.m.

CLEVELAND — The first of four Mahoning County residents, who have pleaded guilty in a $3 million tax-fraud conspiracy case, was sentenced in federal court.

Patricia A. Polk, 50, of Youngstown, drew a 21-month prison term today from U.S. District Judge Patricia A. Gaughan, with credit for the time she has been jailed without bond since her Feb. 28, 2012, arrest in Sarasota, Fla.

Polk pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud the United States in the case, which the U.S. attorney said bilked the federal government out of more than $3 million.

Restitution will be ordered, with the amount to be determined soon, said John Siegel, an assistant U.S. attorney prosecuting the case.

Polk will be on supervised release for three years after she leaves prison.

Bank robbers face up to 25 years in prison, but this thief of some $3 million gets a mere 21 months. Crime in the suites pays.
