Police said Christopher David Sullivan, 37, and a teenage girl led pursuers on a chase in which they stole cars, burglarized homes, menaced bystanders and left at least six crime scenes in their wake. According to an arrest affidavit, Sullivan identified himself as a bail bondsman from Arizona when the couple were initially stopped by a sheriff's deputy last Wednesday near Lookout Mountain, about 12 miles west of Denver.

Lawyer-turned-witness ordered to prison for U.S. tax fraud

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/31/2014 - 05:03
By Nate Raymond and David Ingram NEW YORK (Reuters) - A former partner at defunct law firm Jenkens & Gilchrist, whom prosecutors have called the most important cooperating witness in the largest criminal tax fraud case in U.S. history, was sentenced on Wednesday to six months in prison. At a court hearing in New York, U.S. District Judge William Pauley also ordered Erwin Mayer, of suburban Chicago, to pay $220 million in restitution jointly with other co-conspirators for his part in the promotion of tax shelters the U.S. government said led to $1.63 billion in lost revenue. Mayer, who pleaded guilty in 2010 to conspiracy and tax evasion charges and then became a witness in two trials, apologized for the fraud. Prosecutors said Mayer's testimony was key to securing the conviction last year of Paul Daugerdas, the former head of Jenkens & Gilchrist's Chicago office.
