Ex-tax return preparer’s federal court appeal fails
Published: March 28,2013
OXFORD — A federal appeals court panel has upheld the conviction of an Oxford tax return preparer for filing dozens of false returns.
Thelbert Lamont Lesure was sentenced to three years in prison in 2012 for filing false tax returns. Lesure was indicted on 21 counts. He pleaded guilty one count of knowingly preparing and transmitting a fraudulent tax return to the IRS.
A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Lesure’s challenge to his sentence as too harsh under federal guidelines.
