Judge Orders Release of Man Jailed for Tax Evasion

A North Carolina Superior Court Judge today ordered the immediate release of a man jailed after being found guilty of multiple counts of tax evasion and filing false income tax returns. The Defendant had represented himself at trial, and upon being found guilty, had been sentenced to multiple consecutive terms of imprisonment.

The Defendant’s family subsequently hired Douglas E. Kingsbery of Tharrington Smith, L.L.P. in Raleigh, North Carolina, who successfully obtained the Defendant’s post-conviction relief.
